TrahKannon have been around since 2009, are based in San Jose, CA and play goofy punk rock that is crazed and fun. This is a covers album, where they skewer songs from Katy Perry, Daft Punk, One Direction, Justin Beiber, Miley Cyrus and other (s)hit makers.
All that I can say is this…I have no idea what the originals are supposed to sound like, since I do not listen to any of these “artists,” but this is one funny and very cool album. The songs are sloppy, ramshackle, chaotic and every bit fun and I loved it. If you are a fan of the bands that they cover…..yeah…..don’t think that this is for you, but if you want to hear a band ripping through songs with energy and having a great time, then this is for you. The songs are mostly short, I guess getting rid of the crap and fit perfectly into their repertoire. This is punk rock the way that I like it, raw, gritty and fun.
This is a great album with songs that most, if not all punk fans would hate in their regular versions, but the way that this is done….fantastic! Get this and piss off the fans of the originals, or just get it because it’s a good album dammit!
