Hollywood Potato Chip is full of The Vandals' trademark wry, sardonic wit and air-tight melodies.Mixed by Jerry Finn (Blink 182, Alkaline Trio, Morrissey.) Includes the track 'Don't Stop Me Now' - a raucous cover of the Queen classic.

He also turns nearly everything on the album into a fag joke (something that my fans know I would never, ever do), including aforementioned "Ghost Faggot Riders In The Sky," screaming disgusting sexual nonsense throughout "Hocus Pocus" (by Focus) and changing the ending of "Urban Struggle" to "I couldn't make it as a HOMO! He just has a voice that's nice for yelling, and he's clearly comfortable speaking to a crowd. The whole thing just reeks like a pussy with green mucus coming out of it, oozing slowly down a syphilis-infected cock. The other band members get all of maybe three words in.

" The thing is -- it totally sounds like he's just trying to imitate Lee Ving's performance in The Decline Of Western Civilization (something that my fans know I would never, ever do). As for the punk rock excitement - the kids in the crowd are LOVIN' IT! The crowd is great, though, (all 30 of 'em) and some of Stevo's interaction is priceless: "Looks like we've got some abortion survivals in the front row."

Clear spiritual forefathers of bands like the Offspring, blink-182, and Less Than Jake, the Vandals took their cues from early punk comedians like the Dickies and the Descendents, ratcheting up the wiseass factor and delighting in dumb, lowbrow jokes.

Sometimes satirical and mostly silly, the Vandals also remained staunchly independent for their entire career, releasing records on a variety of punk indies that afforded them financial and creative control.

Orange County punk veterans the Vandals trace their roots back to the earliest days of their local scene, but didn't really make much of an impact as recording artists until the '90s.

By that time, their snide, terminally juvenile humor and catchy punk-pop had done a great deal to set the tone of Orange County's thriving punk and ska scene.

KPFK used to feature it late on Friday or Saturday night, and then for some reason they didn't anymore.

Originally released in 2004, the album has sold over 23K.

Available for the first time on vinyl on this limited edition, blue LP, which includes download card and a bonus track that was previously only available on the international version of the CD.
