The Fixtures Dangerous Music Defect Review

Originally appeared in 1998 in issue 13 of Married Punks.

The Fixtures Dangerous Music Defect

This is the first two Fixtures LPs on one CD, which is a fantastic idea.  My only experience with this vastly underrated band has been its songs "Welcome to L.A." and "Dangerous Music" from the incredible compilation Welcome to Califucknia.

The Fixtures combines balls out, scorching punk music with biting lyrics dealing with social and political issues.  This band deserves to be heard.  Its early Eighties style of punk is refreshing in the era of skacore (which I'm listening to as I write this) and pop punk.  From "High Dive" to the anti-war "Support the Troops" to the scene critical "Dangerous Music," this CD simply kicks ass.  Play loud; play often.
