CBDS is the coming together of two punk giants, Patrick Costello of Dillinger Four fame and the legendary Aaron Cometbus who drummed for such notable East Bay bands as Crimpshine and Pinhead Gunpowder. This CD includes all of the band's recordings from 7"s and compilations along with some new songs they recorded up until 1999.

The songs on this CD are pretty short with all but one under two minutes. The entire album is about 20 minutes long, but what it lacks in length it makes up in raw energy. It grabs you right off the bat with the hard-hitting "Rumble Seats and Running Boards" and doesn't let you go. This is fast and loud punk at its finest. The vocals trade off from song to song between Paddy's throaty growl and Emily's gritty shreiking, but nothing is lost in the transition. Patrick conveys the same emotion in his voice as he does in Dillinger Four and makes you want to sing along with a raised fist and a sneer while Emily's singing brings thoughts of tough chicks in tougher bars who don't take shit off from anyone.

The overall mixture of aggression and harmony of the band makes this one of my favorite albums to listen to when I want something fast and up-tempo. I suggest picking this one up, especially if you're a D4 fan.

it's true, it's true, the recent "gateway handshake" 7" is also badass.

but on to more pressing matters. i can't seem to find information on the cometbus "down in front" compilation anywhere. you can find info on the cd version (but that thing doesn't even have half the original songs). i want to know info about the original 4x7" compilation. i know that one of the 7 inches is shared by EFS and the Cosmetic Puffs, and that one of the 7 inches has 2 live Pinhead gunpowder cuts and one acoustic song on side a, but i know nothing of side b. and that still leave 2 more 7 inches that i know nothing about. somebody help me.

The total raddness of this albm can't be overstated.

Great album.

Also, if anyone's interested, go to the No Idea records website and check out their Cometbus compilation - over a dozen tracks from a ton of bands that Cometbus has played in, including this one.

I am in totaly agreeance with the statement underneath this.

Dillinger Four and Crimpshrine are two of the greatest bands ever, that being said this is pretty damn good.

oh man, this is a classic. if you don't like this, you don't like punk.

gladimnotemo (June 16, 2006)

Lies. Great album, great songs.

Crookedsuperhero (June 16, 2006)

Most of these songs are really forgettable and really bad.

Track 2 is great though, and the recent 7" on No Idea was ok.

Great band and a great collection of all their material up until their newer 7" on No Idea.
