Dead Trend | “19th Hole”

Straight out of Portland, Maine, punkers Dead Trend are dropping their debut album, False Positive, on May 7th. Author Mike Fournier fronts this band (he’s most noted for his book “Double Nickels on the Dime” about the Minutement album of the same name), and he wails into the mic like he’s got a definite point to prove. Many of the songs are straight-up traditional punk rock, with a few little fun samples thrown in - the track I’ve linked to opens with what I can only guess is one of those old records from the ’50s that aimed to teach Americans foreign languages.
