I might be pushing it by posting two Punchbuggy albums within hours of each other, but that was the plan from the beginning anyway. Besides, Punchbuggy's "All Nite Christian Rollerskate" ranks alongside Bender's "Funny Kar" as two of the most underrated pop-punk albums of the 90's (both from Canada, too), though as usual my list is probably a bit flawed. I'll admit that I don't have Punchbuggy's middle two CDs, "Grand Opening Going Out Of Business Sale" and "My Norwegian Cousin"-- I've only heard bits and pieces of them-- but if I were you I'd get on that shit right away.
It used to bother me that Punchbuggy took "I'm Around", the one track with the tiniest guitar sound, and made it the opening track on the record, but I've gotten over it since then and I hardly notice it now. Besides, it's a cool song. Otherwise, "All Nite Christian Rollerskate" is chock full of hits, which made it tough to whittle down to the eight tracks I'm posting here, but (whew) somehow I managed.
