Here's the real deal: damaged, streetwise, authentic, Robitussin-chugging, white-trash punk rock from Kansas City. On "Road Trip" singer Heather snarls, "Ate orange peels for breakfast today/got jumped by ten krusties on the way/sleeping on broken glass again tonight/still baby it's just like heaven/since you ditched me at the 7-11." Other tales of the down-and-out punk lifestyle include "That's Why I Steal," a song about making ends meet as a destitute street punk; "3 Day Blackout," which is about hookers and killing; and many more like "Self Hatred" and "So Far Gone" that cry out for counseling and Prozac. There are few gals in punk rock with a voice as bitchin' as Heather's, and Sex Offenders are mighty fierce sounding, especially their knockout cover of the Avengers' "Thin White Line."
