"Reggae had sex with metal, punk got in the mix, and ska videotaped it all." Such titillating prose humorously describes The Expendables, a band from Santa Cruz, CA, that juggles rock, reggae and surf sounds. The foursome cites influences like Slightly Stoopid, Bad Brains, Lagwagon, The Police and NOFX, resulting in a foundation informed by a wider spectrum of styles than the archetypal So Cal pop-punk act.The group hits the road with a Jagermeister sponsorship and support from speed punkers Authority Zero, ska purveyors Supervillians and local boys Lawrence Letterday.
