Re-release as part of the Boss Tuneage Retro series of the discography by the seminal late 90s US pop punk band BEN GRIM due to popular demand - the CD has been out of print for over 7 years and is now made available again, and for the first time via store distribution (the original release in 2004 was mail-order only). BEN GRIM hailed from Wisconsin and played melodic punk that you could term "pop punk" before that became a dirty word and became synonymous with various insipid MTV pop bands. Taking their influences from the likes of DESCENDENTS, DOUGHBOYS and BIG DRILL CAR, "Retro" contains the bands complete studio recordings, plus 7 rare bonus tracks taken from the bands final 4 track demos before their split in 2001.
