Vanilla Muffins - All Give Some - Some Give All EP
Haunted Town
     Vanilla Muffins play classic British Oi in the vein of Cockney Rejects, The Business, and Cock Sparrer.  This is well played and produced three piece Oi. 
All Give Some… is a definite must for fans of Oi, especially fans of Cockney Rejects.  This four song CD EP is also available as double gatefold 7 inch vinyl record.  (db)

v/a - Rocked 'N' Loaded
Rock 'N' Roll Purgatory
     This 25 song, 22 band comp from the nice folks at Rock 'N' Purgatory Magazine will rock your socks off! 
Rocked 'N' Loaded is 72 minutes worth of psychobilly, punk, and surf tunes that will leave you wanting more.  Included here in are track from local heroes The Roustabouts, Eight Ball Grifter, Rocket 350, The GC5, Lords of the Highway, Hudson Falcons, Grave Danger, and the Brassknuckle Boys just to name a few.  The stand out moments to me is the two unreleased songs by the now defunct Staggers.  This is a fantastic CD.  (db)   

Vanilla Muffins - Sugar Oi! will win!!!
Haunted Town
     This is a re-issue of 1994's
Sugar Oi! wil win!!! and is released along side Vanilla Muffins' new EP All Give Some - Some Give All (see above review).  This CD is 11 tracks of British Oi.  If you are a fan of Cockney Rejects, The Business, or Cock Sparrer, definitely check out Vanilla Muffins.  (db)

V/A - Warped Tour 2001 Compilation
Side One Dummy
     This comp is a collection of bands that played on the 2001 Warped Tour and is a lot better than I thought it would be.  Included are tracks from The Bouncing Souls, Rancid, Flogging Molly, Madcap, AFI, Me First & the Gimme Gimmes, Swingin' Utters, The Vandals, and The Might Mighty Bosstones, just to name a few.  Depending on where you get this CD it is only about $9, so it's pretty cheap.  (db)

V/A - Atticus…Dragging the Lake
Side One Dummy
     This is a 24 song compilation put out by Blink 182's clothing label Atticus and Side One Dummy.  Bands on this CD include Alkaline Trio, New Found Glory, Agent 51, and Blink 182 to just name a few.  I'm sure the kids really like this CD, but I don't.  I'm not a fan of Blink 182 or emo (a majority of the bands on this comp are emo bands), so there is not much here for me.  It's only $6, so that is a plus.  (db)
