Lunch - Quinn Touched The Sun cassette
Like any good punks, Portland's Lunch makes loud, fun music for questionable people. Poised with fistfuls of thick guitar, pounding rhythms, and copious amounts of attitude, the quartet paints a range post-pop-punk melodies around a barrage of salacious lyricism. The influences involved look much The Gun Club playing Buzzcocks songs in the style of Wire. Mostly, though, it sounds like an upbeat collection of garage-y punk songs played with as much gusto as the rainy weather will allow. The band's first full length, "Quinn Touched the Sun", is throbbing musical effort filled with garage-pop anthems and post-punk ballads for any and all people who want to move their feet.
