Game Day

Album length: 15 tracks: 47 minutes
Street Date: July 17, 2001

Makeshift3 is a pop/ punk group of 3, which began way back in 1995 in San Diego County. They state influences from Blink 182 to Pantera to the Foo Fighters and MxPx. And have played with groups like Slick Shoes, Dogwood, Project 86, PAX217, Hangnail, Noise Ratchet, and many more with articles in HM and CCM Magazines and some airplay on ESPN. Game Day is their nationally distributed 3rd release on Micah Records.

Makeshift3 definitely doesn't do anything to throw more dirt on punk's inevitable grave but also doesn't seem to help dig them out either. This is decent, well-produced music but nothing that we haven't already heard from MxPx and many more alike. For the avid punk fan, I would suggest picking this up this 15-track 47-minute deal but for someone looking for something fresh, look further. One note, though, is track 15, "Twinkie Fingermuffins," which is pure genius showing that Makeshift3 definitely has a lot more to offer; just not right now.
