The New Bomb Turks - I'm Weak. Get Hip Records 7". GH-139.

The New Bomb Turks were a heavy, heavy Columbus, Ohio punk band who released their first two LPs on Crypt Records. Following this they moved on to Epitaph. They're still going in some form, but activity has been limited over the past few years. Last year, singer Eric Davidson had the book We Never Learn: The Gunk Punk Undergut, 1988-2001 published. A well-intentioned, well-written chronicle of the period, the book is worth reading despite the pointless attempt to rebrand various lo-fi, punk and DIY scenes as 'Gunk Punk'.
