If you could manage to stretch the words fuck you into a full minute and a half, you'd have an idea of what Bombs Over Broadway is communicating on the 10 songs comprising Nuclear Saturday. Every track on this EP — the Kansas City punk band's second — is a sneering face behind an upraised middle finger. With the exception of the aptly titled "Pop Rox," most songs are sharply pointed, snarling fits of anger. Vocals are delivered with razor-throated fury. The music is no slave to any particular subgenre, working in straight-ahead punk rock ("Corporate Checklist") and thrash ("Thanks Coach, Nice Pep Talk") with equal aplomb. Purists may scoff at the blending of the various flavors, but Bombs Over Broadway mixes up hardcore, street punk and just a tinge of metal that will have you thinking, "Whatever, man — it's all rock and roll."
