Vanzetti Crime [USA]

late 2007 - early 2009 [RIP]
Awesome ska punk/ska-core/crack rock band from Salt Lake City, Utah. For a short life of the band they created around 18 songs, pretty different and most of them i like a lot. I think their music is fresh and unique. And only 43 listeners on That's bad!

They released 2 3-track EP's: Communicating Through Bombs in 2007 and ...All We Have in 2008. In december 2008 they recorded full-length. It includes all tracks from EP's except 10 Year Plan.
