Rough Times Ahead
Here's some more Asian punk. Suck stuff are from South Korea and on this album feature a Korean-American on vocals. The vocalist suffered a number of the kind of drawbacks that those with an Asian face are likely to go through in the Asian based English as a second language industry. Ie; assumptions that an Asian face means that English is not your first language, people assuming that your native language is that of the country where you are based and much lower pay than those with a white face. The singer got frustrated with the EFL industry and eventually left the band to join the army whilst in Korea, on the condition that he was not stationed in South Korea.
"Rough Times Ahead" contains more than a few traces of Social Distortion.
