Straight - Happy Club (1998)




We're going to spend the next while digging through some CDs from the year 1998, and we've randomly picked this one, which just happens to be by one of our all-time favourites. Straight picked up on the excellent work of the Quitters, with Joe McCaffery's songwriting taking a Superchunk-y direction. We can't stress this enough: "Vacant" is the best self-loathing anthem to ever come out of this city.


Shortly before their one-off reunion alongside Fire Engine Red two years ago, Straight launched a bandcamp site - get the download or physical CD from there.

So you say they're from Calgary; but did you know Calgary street punk acts are often manufactured, prefabs; process demos provided to a private business; assembling groups similar to Sex Pistols; allegations exist that Kidz; No Copies Left may be the only actual true straight edge hardcore punk band of Alberta history to be formed successfully, performing events, credible as punk while Calgary is practicing protocols of Zion, to benefit Jewry - Shulchan Aruch
