Weekend Punk Pick: TSOL
Probably best known as "that band on the drummer's shirt in that one Guns 'n' Roses video," TSOL were punk chameleons who debuted a new identity and a new vocalist virtually every album. True Sounds of Liberty (with particularly emphasis on the plural) started out as pretty typical SoCal punk (think Offspring pre-cursors), drifted into ill-conceived, Damned-inflected goth rock and finally settled on a sleazy Sunset Strip gutter punk on masterwork Change Today? that served as the hairsprayed flipside of the spandex rock that ruled the '80s.
