CSC Distro - This is a Standoff - Be Delighted - Compact Disc
CD, gotten from the band during the reunion tour. Selling this with their blessings.
12 years ago, This is a Standoff booked a debut European tour on the legs of just two demos on MySpace (remember that place ??) and their collective credibility from past projects (Belvedere, Forty Cent Fix and One Shot Left). After the success of their first record, Be Excited, these dudes couldn't have picked a more ironic album title in Be Disappointed. This album is a collection of some of the tightest, catchiest technical punk rock released in Canada since, well, the first This is a Standoff record was released a couple of years ago.
These guys have made some remarkable strides, and it seems as if This is a Standoff are destined to transcend the successes of their past projects. With Be Delighted, there's no reason that This is a Standoff couldn't become the definitive technical punk rock band of 2009 and beyond.
