I've got my copy firmly glued into the car stereo and bookmarked on Spotify! It's a brilliant driving album... it has the punk aggression mixed with the relaxed vibes of the ukulele. I want to sing along with "Fight Song" when someone cuts me up (a rather excellent original tune incidentally) but I'm too busy smiling and rhythmically tapping the steering wheel :)

Peter and The Test Tube Babies, The Ramones & The Dead Kennedys are all covered here and it's wonderful to see some well thought out song choices rather than churning out the really obvious tracks that feature on every "best of punk" album that's ever sold for 1.99. There are some terrific original tracks too that fit seamlessly into the mix which is a triumph in itself and not easy to do. It shows The Pukes have their own style that shines through any song they turn their hands to. Wickedly tight bass playing too.

Personally I love it, and if punk isn't your thing, have a listen anyway as it's just damn good fun and that's what the uke is all about :)
