The O.C. Supertones
Supertones Strike Back



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 12 tracks: 41 minutes, 28 seconds
Street Date: May, 1997


The Orange County Supertones have returned with their sophomore release, Supertones Strike Back. The disc starts off with the title track which is packed with a more aggressive feel than their debut. With louder, harder-driven guitars and deeper, more moody vocals they proclaim, "Protect your neck, Supertones strike back!" The gospel-filled lyrics you were introduced to in their debut are still there. Now seven guys: vocals, drums, bass, trumpet, tenor sax, guitar, and trombone, they hit harder than before. This is also evident in "Unite," "Unite! Ignite and spark a light to burn so bright the sight will blind the blind of this our modern time."

...Strike Back is one of the best ska albums available. If you're a fan of the genre, or even if you're not, check it this solid rock record.

- Written by John DiBiase, May 1997
