Ryan, Keith, & Lance really used to tear up the Stevens Point house show scene. Their enthusiasm was infectious and their live sets were inspired. Also, their soundproofing of the WRAT WOMB was legendary. When everyone was moving out of the house they had to come to ShopKo multiple times to get enough rubbing alcohol to kill all the mold that grew under the foam and carpet. It was awesome.
I wish I didn't have to write this as a eulogy. RIP Secret Secretions! You are missed.
I've listened to a ton of punk records, and it's pretty rare to find on that doesn't sound like a rip-off of something else. The Secret Secretions manage to do avoid this trapping and their debut album is all the more awesome because of it. Their sound is a weird punk/reggae/surf fusion, but their intensity is undeniably PUNK ROCK®. Their album blazes through all of their best songs which tackle everything from Scientology to the pointlessness of our modern existence. In short, this record slays. Also of note: the Secret Secretions wanted this to be released for free, so if you buy it online you're just paying for postage.

What's the Point? is a compilation of hot new Stevens Point, WI bands giving you a taste of what the town has to offer. Covering all areas of the musical map from folk to grindcore, WTP? is a collection of music by people who are excited about making things happen where they live. When I first moved to Stevens Point I didn't realize that so many good things were going on under my nose, so I decided to document what we had. All I wanted to do was to make a compilation, but what we wound up with is a recording of where we started before things got even better.
