Following the lead of New England greats like the Queers and the Leftovers come Portsmouth New Hampshire's Guts. Singer/guitarist Geoff Useless writes the songs while bassist/singer Nate Doyle holds down the rhythm section with drummer Rick Orcut. Recorded at Smart Studios by Justin Perkins with production help and guest vocals from Ben Weasel, the tunes on "Let It Go" combine melody, aggression and a sense of urgency in a way that every pop punk band aims for but so few nail - The Guts' take the direct, honest approach to playing music that is so often lacking in the fashion conscious punk bands on the magazine covers. They aren't very pretty and they don't move in all the right circles but they know how to write a kick-ass tune and remind you that after all the hype has died down and all the bells and whistles cease to amuse, there's still nothing like a good old-fashioned kick-ass punk rock band.
