A killer under the radar ripper from 1988. Torrance's PKG are raw on the Roadtrip demo, but their early DC sensibilities crash into So Cal punk hooks in a most glorious way and the just-a-few-steps-above-boombox recording quickly becomes an asset. At their best when they are burning (of course), "Don't Blink," Sex w/Sadie" and the title track are the standouts, but the mid tempo shit is well worth diving into as well. The whole band is killer, but the vocals steal it - earnest adolescent enthusiasm is a hard thing to fake, and an even harder thing to deny.
