Blackstrap is a punkish rock band from Durham, North Carolina. Formed in the wake of 9-11, at first in the "what the fuck are we doing with our lives," since the founding members had given up playing music for some time. That soon turned to "What the fuck is our country doing?" Their sound often has a early-80s Slash Records sort of twang to it, and gets compared to a lot of the noisier, aggressivly charged bands of that era.

Home Security

Just in time for the revaltions that we are spying on ourselves, a song about those odd telemarketing calls.

A little ode to pre-emptive attack, written during the build up to our little hot war.

We're old enough to have smartened up, but dumb enough to keep embarrassing ourselves.
