War Profiteering Is Killing Us All

Genre: Rock; Producer (group): Side One Dummy

Here’s a ska-meets-hardcore band that Noam Chomsky could love. War Profiteering Is Killing Us All, the Detroit rabble-rousers’ sixth album pushes their anticorporate, antiwar, anti-apathy message to cartoonish extremes. Even when the boys pull back to allow a touch of Caribbean melody to creep through their punk screeds, The Suicide Machines see only ”total destruction, total collapse” and ”Capitalist Suicide.” Otherwise, the polka-beat tempos are revved so high that the 13 songs blow past in 31 minutes. After all, who’s got time to waste when Western civilization is about to crumble?
