Isaac Paris

Fun Punk rock, in the vein of NOFX and Less than Jake circa 1997
I don't know if people are still going to see 90s punk ska acts such as Less Than Jake, although, I suspect that NOFX fans have a certain "never say die" quality. Here is an example that proves there are still kids playing this exciting , angry music and it makes others get up and circle mosh. The familiar elements are here, upstroke ska guitar through distortion, fast ryhthms- heavy on snare, snotty vocals and lyrics about getting wasted in a dead end town.
Evan is known for his eccentric charm, as he can't help but gleefully bounce while he sings, and shreds. The guitar is hopelessly messy of course, but it doesn't matter because PJ brings us such intricate and relentlessly pounded drum rhythms. I struggle honestly to tell the voices of PJ and Evan apart from each other. I think Evan is usually in lead vocal duty, he sounds as if he is smiling, no matter how mean the lyrics are. The one screaming is usually PJ.
The trombone on Young Rizzo vs. Fat Val from Toddy is a pleasant inclusion, though it's on few of these 16 tracks. This song is about a zombie apocalypse and "people were literally being…. eaten alive" says the disembodied talking heads from the television samples in the intro.
Burn it has some skanky guitar upstrokes, and a wide variety of tempos. They angrily cheer: "Burn down the White house with the President inside!"
The Wasteland is a tribute to a notorious house in Downtown Anchorage, It was a trashed shell of an abode but managed to keep its occupants warm and dry and most weekends could be counted on to be the site of a show or two. They give directions to the place in the lyrics to the song, though its no longer housing malcontent punks who host underage shows.
The mix suits the material well, the guitar is suitably huge, vocals are always clear and the drums are done in such a way that PJ's frequent subtleties aren't missed. He throws in fills, drills his snare, and more high hat hits than you would think would be possible in a brief second. At parts where the guitar is playing loud power chords, his cymbal playing is almost enough to sing along to. Sometimes I wish the bass were louder, like on First Skank.

If you still like this kind of music, check out another Alaskan punk band, Whiskey Tango.
