The accepted punk method of insulting bands nowadays is far from clever. All it takes is for one person to make a fairly obvious point, use it in a negative context, and repeat it ad nauseum. Case in point is the “sounds like Pennywise” stigma that 1208’s been stuck with. Not that it’s an unwarranted comparison: 1208 was not only spawned from the Californian skate punk scene but Pennywise guitarist Fletcher Dragge produced their previous record. However the urge to dwell on that connection has unfairly overshadowed what’s become a tight and energetic band.
