Whippersnapper was a band from my home town that featured fast melodies, fast guitars, and fast drums. Their attitude was California punk, and their sound was complex and hectic.
The band released three proper albums — Whippersnapper in 1998, The Long Walk in 1999, and Appearances Wear Thin in 2002. Before all that, they released a homemade tape that sold like hotcakes locally.
And here it is!
