Taking its cue from the glorious skate-punk bands of the early 1990s, Nopamine plays thrash music at full throttle speeds with total F.U. attitude. Despite all the snotty wise-cracks and outlandish costumes, these guys do know how to carry a tune. Guitarists/vocalists Brooks Bonkoski and Dan Childs keep the basic punk chords and brash lyrics cohesive and sprinkled with pop-music sensibilities. Bassist Sage Snyder and drummer Brian Tekautz set the tempos, which is no easy task considering the energy needed for a 50-plus song set-list. Nopamine released the digital album Degenerate Scumfucks in August.
