The third album by ADZ - basically a re-formed Adolescents featuring a revolving door of musicians behind singer/songwriter Tony Reflex - finds the group with a nearly complete reunion of the early Adolescents, missing only guitarist Rikk Agnew. Unlike the basically lighthearted pop-punk of the first two ADZ albums, there's a dark undercurrent to Transmissions from Planet Speedball.
A sometimes harrowing song cycle that depicts a first-person descent into drug abuse and self-destruction, the album is in some ways like a late-'90s reworking of Hüsker Dü's Zen Arcade, ditching that album's conceptual sprawl but keeping its forward motion and yowling intensity (as well as its psychedelic leanings - the album's highlight is a snarling pure. punk version of Syd Barrett's "Lucifer Sam"). Even the lighter material, like the Queers-style "Bob Cut and a Lunchbox," is pretty desperate.
For their second album, recorded with a partially new lineup behind singer Tony Reflex, ADZ nicked their title from Pink Floyd - the next album, 1999's Transmissions from Planet Speedball, would feature a scorching cover of "Lucifer Sam" - but its sound remains solidly in the Adolescents tradition of deft hardcore with strong pop roots. Rockers like the bracing opener, "Driving With the Radio On," mix the sound of Adolescents classics like "Balboa Fun Zone" with a sharper sense of melody and hooks, and the results sound like an appealing cross between Redd.
