Who else but a bunch of fresh-faced boys from Indiana could write a hip-hop song about playing Galaga? Quatro, from Midwestern ska revivalists Johnny Socko, shows why this band has become a regional favorite. The band incorporates just enough hip-hop and punk elements to keep the music from sinking into dime-a-dozen ska style, while the songwriting ranges from standard boy loses girl fare to much more clever themes. Highlights include "Old School Master" and "Devil's Advocate."
