Seeing as one of Cannonball’s major plans for 2024 is to put out digital reissues of some previously unavailable “classic albums” of his from the 2010s, we figured what better way to start than with 2015’s Shriekofafreak!, which Chris Urban aka Christoph Jesus, frontman of legendary NJ antifolk/punk band Crazy & the Brains, listed as part of his annual “Best Of” for PunkNews.org the year of its release, writing:
“You can’t fuck with this kid. He puts modern “punk” acts to shame. Very aggressive folk music. This is like acoustic Dead Kennedys. He sounds like he is about to snap and he barks like a dog. I think there is something wrong with him…in the best way possible.”
The full album can be heard for free on BandCamp right here, and purchased as a download if you’d like to support Cannonball’s work: Shriekofafreak!
There’s plenty more coming up throughout the year, so stay tuned and start following the Cannonball Statman BandCamp page if you’d like to hear more and aren’t already following him there!
See you soon!
