The Electricutions are bringing back Political Punk Rock to the DC area. Years ago, Dischord Records led the charge and young punks gathered round, but in recent years Dischord’s bite and edge have waned. Thus, for the last few years the DC punk rock scene has been non-existent. DC was desolate of good rock-n-roll, until a few bands dared to defy, dared to be different. One of these bands was the Electricutions, brainchild of Scott Wilson. Scott, a new resident to the DC area, saw that there were no good bands. Like a punch to the face, Scott had an amazing idea. He would create the best punk rock band in the area. The Electricutions bring political lyrics back to the medium that reflects unrest best, punk rock. Nine songs of spite, fire, and righteous anger will blast through your speakers. Will the ruling body take notice? NO, but you will. These songs will leave you dancing, singing, and pounding your fist in protest.
Here is an excerpt of Razorcake‘s review:
“…Rock solid Dirtnap-tinged punk stuff with politically charged lyrics…”
The Electricutions consist of members from the NVs from DC, brother to Odie Wilson of the famous Baseball Furies.
