The Have Nots do a great job of using east coast style punk and mixing in some reggae and a bit of ska (more reggae then ska I would say?) that gives this album a bit of a unique sound. I don’t know if its because I haven’t heard any new punk/ska albums since the 90's or what but these guys make it sound like they have been doing it for years (and they have in other bands). ""Serf City USA"" Is the first release for this band and has so far been a great success!
So far I have loved every song on this album except 1 track which wasn’t even that I disliked it as it simply was not as great as every other song on the album. Really this album has a great line up of songs that cross between punk and then ska, then some reggae with punk and so on.
If you are a fan of the punk/ska this will be a must have album. If your not a fan of ska then you most likely will not enjoy this album very much even though I don’t care for ska and really don’t like traditional reggae but I have still be rocking this album day and night.
Have Nots members have been in several previous bands such as ""Stray Bullets"" and ""Chicago Typewriter"",
