What ever happened to the OC Supertones and bands of that ilk? You know what I mean, the ska-punk bands so popular in early to mid-2000’s. New Jersey’s No Lost Cause are back with a six-song ep to remind all the old-timers of those days and to bring that sound to a new generation. Well, maybe that’s my interpretation but I do hear a lot of the old bands and sound on this ep, just without the horns.
Hailing from Tom’s River, New Jersey, No Lost Cause started in 2010 with the goal of bringing “hope to the listeners while putting out some music you might be able to tap your foot or nod your head to.” Fans of the OC Supertones, FIF, and other ska/punk bands of the time will find some very familiar sounds, with the notably exception of the horns as NLC is a three-piece with no horn section. The ep was recorded at Eightsixteen studios in Bayville, New Jersey, with mixing and mastering by Buddy Eirman.
