..great individualist punk rock much in the same way Half Japanese is. There are times where you have to say What the fuck?" and that is good. Man, I really dig this record. Refreshingly no bullshit and all its own thing." -جø¬-?? Scott Soriano, S-S Records. "Wow! A lotta punk singles pass through here and most go unnoted because theyre so by the numbers.-Ç The debut record by New Jerseys Homeblitz, Apocalyptic Grades 2005 AD (Homeblitz 7"), is a different kettle of stink.-Ç Although one senses that the underlying concept is not inimical to the concept of pop-punk, the execution goes far beyond that.-Ç The final track, "Hey!" does have the same kind of lost yard jumble classicism as, say, Mike Fornatales "Kickin Chickens", but the lead off tune has an avant-pumice edge that recalls nothing less than The Electric Eels "Cyclotron".-Ç And 28 years after the fact, I can still remember my first hearing of that side, in Andy Schwartzs old pad on East 10th Street.-Ç Since Ill be dead in another 28 years, this wont have the same kind of personal legs, but what the heck?" -جø¬-??
