Overview

Leftöver Crack came up in New York City's ABC No-Rio squatter scene, though the band is not typical of those surroundings. The group does delve into left-wing political pundit-pounding that saturated their home base ("Nazi White Trash," the anti-homophobic "Gay Rude Boys Unite"), and just as savagely as their brethren at that. However, the foursome plays anything but "traditional" NYC crust-core. Though that is present, most notably in the harsh vocals of Ara Crack, black metal, ska-core, grindcore, Cramps-like rockabilly on "The Good, the Bad & the Leftöver Crack," and plenty of old-school punk all get worked out. With the name and the musical incongruity, you'd think that the band's a joke, but the lyrics and liner notes tell a different story, which is both a refreshing change of pace and somewhat confusing to the casual observer at the same time.

what can i say? these guys are awesome. they are ex-choking victim, and are still churning out great crusty ska-punk with heavy doses of sarcasm and disdain for society. they wanted to call the album ''shoot the kids at school,'' which is a comment on surburban society, but it was taken as more of a dangerous command and they weren't allowed to use it. when these guys play live, they can't headline because they get too drunk to play by the end of the show. they are definitely unique. check this out.
