    In the summer of ‘96 or ‘97, my late aunt Tonya had bestowed upon me the gift of a “Punk-O-Rama Vol. 2” CD. This was (of course) a collection of some of the coolest tracks my adolescent ears had heard up to that point. I still maintain it’s the best of that collection. The last track on that comp was “Jukebox Lean” by New Bomb Turks. As was the case for me with music, I’d make my way to a record store that was a million miles away and buy a record once a month. The only NBT CD they had available was appropriately titled !!Destroy-Oh-Boy!!. The wild drums, uninhibited energy of the super fuzzy distorted guitars and thick deep bass really helped to add to my definition of what good punk rock was. I continued to add their music to my collection, tracks like “Suckerpunch”, “Automatic Teller”, and “Grandpa Atomic” all became regular additions to my mixtapes and later playlists. To this day, I have a NBT playlist in my Apple Music library. So, to say I was excited when I was given the opportunity to work with them on this shirt would be an understatement. In my humble opinion New Bomb Turks are part of the bar that was set for `90s punk. -Martin Dunn
