Singer-guitarist Matt Mugridge slurs and slobbers like a slightly more discernible Roger Miret. His guitar playing is Yngwie-worthy by punk standards (we're pretty sure we heard six, maybe even seven chords here), brightening the band's mostly mid-paced numbers with frothing solos. The Skipped's blue-collar rhythm section of bassist Bill Spear and drummer Paul Strachan adds heft to such cuts as "What You Got" and "Victim of the System" -- instant anthems that are all curled lips and clenched fists. For fans of vintage punk, All Revved Up will get your motor running.
