The features that make Keith Morris such a spectacular frontman would also make him a terrible kindergarten teacher: his ragged, insolent roar; his signature dreads (they're still around!); his unkempt fashion sense; his desire to bluntly dig into ugly truths and question authority whenever he has a mic in hand. In OFF! — his three-years-running L.A.-based hardcore punk outfit, which also contains personnel from Redd Kross, Rocket from the Crypt, and Burning Brides — the former Circle Jerks singer possesses the consummate venting platform. On the whole, the four-piece's true draw is its tempestuous live shows, rather than its crudely cool, nostalgia-inducing discography. A 57-year-old Morris howling "Borrow and Bomb" and "King Kong Brigade" on a recording doesn't compare to his performance in person.
