Twenty Bucks And Two Black Eyes
U.S. Roughnecks

Serving up punk the way it was meant to be played -- rabidly, rapidly and proficiently -- this forceful, guttural five-piece from Sacramento, is one of the last authentic American hardcore units left in existence.

"We're all about bringing the toughness back to punk," says bassist Big Jay, who also doubles as a member of Lars Frederiksen's other band, the Bastards. "Fuck that wimpy shit, get some balls and play some rock & roll."

And with the U.S. ROUGHNECKS' Hellcat debut, Twenty Bucks and Two Black Eyes, these cats get right to the claw. As rugged and uncompromising as the title suggests, the disc explores frontman Mike's troubled youth ("Summer of '96"), celebrates the 'Necks' hometown scene ("Sacto's Alright") and flips the bird at local law enforcement ("Serve And Protect.")

The Debut Full Length LP/CD from Sactos finest!
