Water All Around

"Water all around...never learn how to swim now." This site is devoted to great alternative music. Like "Swingin' Party" by the Replacements from which the aforementioned lyrics hail. These posts are intended to introduce visitors to bands that I believe deserve greater attention. If you wish to have an MP3 removed, email me at zotzedwriter@yahoo.com.

Founded in 2002 and finished in 2005 after just two discs, the Transplants were a side project of Rancid’s Tim Armstrong. Unlike Rancid – which kicks out a ferocious ska-punk – the Transplants throw down a bassier, groovier sound with rapped out lyrics. Gangsta-punk, maybe? Regardless of what you term it, it’s pretty doggone good.

I prefer their 2002 self-titled disc to the slicker, glossier Haunted Cities from 2005. Which is why these three tracks hail from the earlier effort:

[MP3] Transplants – “Diamonds and Guns” EXPIRED
[MP3] Transplants – “Sad But True” EXPIRED
[MP3] Transplants – “We Trusted You” EXPIRED

Buy the Transplants
