None or Unknown
Holy. Fucking. Shit. Those were the exact words that came out of my mouth when I first heard The Greatest Sons. This Canadian 3-piece's debut EP "We'll Take The Road" is pure perfection and it's got a little bit of something just about everyone can enjoy, mixing the fast-paced fury of NOFX with the The Bouncing Souls' bass-heavy sound and The Loved Ones' melodicism. That's all I've really got to say - stop reading this and go over to Bandcamp and listen to this bad ass EP!

Members of Portland’s grindcore band Transient and jazz-punk band The Taxpayers have fused to make folk punk magic in their group Shitty Weekend, in which The Taxpayers’ frontman, guitarist, and banjo-boy Andrew Link supplies vocals.
Shitty Weekend’s sound draws from many subgenres of punk, from the depths of 1980′s California hardcore to contemporary folk and surf punk. Their DIY sound shrieks and screeches through polished distortion and screams with the aggression of West coast punk rock.
Shitty Weekend is releasing their debut album “Shit Week” on March 8th. Check out some of their tunes below.Add to My Radar
