Devastation- Rebel Streets CD review

Devastation- Rebel Streets CD review
I didn’t now street punk still existed- it seemed to explode in the mid-2000s, and now it has all but died off almost entirely.  One band has kept the faith, however; Devastation, a group out of southern California’s suburbs.  This music is an 80s hardcore/ street punk hybrid playing punk as I have always seen it- honest, optimistic (sometimes too much so), raw, and of the more undesirable social creatures that litter the world, albeit necessarily.  Some songs stand out a little more than others, but for the most part, this record doesn’t have a “hit” or “signature” song.  The music’s fun, worth the listen; it’s different kids doing the same thing bands in the 80s were, with a few cultural changes.  Nothing wrong with that.
