Here's proof that punk rock can be totally adorable. After Truro punks Genetic Angry graduated from high school, Evan Mumford left for university and started recording on his own as Jerk Damaged. At first, it was just Mumford, a guitar and a drum machine, cranking out sincere and self-deprecating pop punk. On For The Ones Who Don't Feel Right we see Jerk Damaged grow into a full band, and although we lose some of the intimacy of the bedroom recordings, Mumford's lyrics hold you close, managing to be both heartbreaking and hilarious, dropping Ernest Hemingway and Barenaked Ladies references in the same song.
