Paper + Plastick Records thought Plow United needed a retrospective, but maybe this release is for people like me who don’t even know who these guys are. Plow United were/are a “seminal” punk rock band from ’92-’98 and disbanded. They reunited this year after 13 years to play Riot Fest in Philly.
The band hails from Delaware, which begs the question…are they the first band from Delaware? I’m honestly drawing a blank on bands from that state. Anyway, this retrospective has a whopping 34 remastered tracks on it and contains 3 full length albums, singles, rarities and other songs that could fit on here.
What I like about Plow United’s sound is the simple pop punk sound that bands like Screeching Weasel, Avail and Lagwagon perfected. The audio quality makes me want to dig up some old punk mixes I used to make back during this time period. Most of the tracks are very short, which is the punk rock thing to do. Since I have music ADD, I appreciate the short tracks.
I can see why Paper + Plastick felt the need to give these guys a retrospective since a lot of people couldn’t get a chance to hear their music. I’m sure everyone was trying to get their releases elsewhere and spending a lot, well now they don’t have to. Everything is in one spot. These guys are worth checking out if you haven’t already heard of them.
Bottom Line: Plow United’s retrospective should appeal to their fans and newcomers as well
