Last Option is for the absolute punk rock purist who enjoys the harder edged and aggressive side of this genre. From Arizona, Last Option originally formed in 1986 and has endured a hiatus and changes throughout the years. As Friedrich Nietzsche said, ” That which does not kill us, makes us stronger”. Last Option could have been but a memory, instead they are a wonderful addition to San Diego’s music scene.
A Bit More..
This seasoned band has, what I call, “bratty vocals” kicking it with tasty guitar shredding with a nice distortion, meaty heaviness and rambunctious drums. Their lyrics speak of good times and hints of frustrations that we can all relate to but with that “lets party our asses off!” vibe. Yes, you’ll want to party your ass off!
Honestly, I have never seen Last Option live and in my face all sweaty and shit – yet. I fully intend to do in the near future. Yes, getting destroyed by Last Option is among my top 10 things to do when this sucky but necessary self-isolation and social distancing ends. Until then, I have chosen to bide my time today by listening to their creations which motivated me to introduce you to them! Hopefully, I’ll see you at a future Last Option show. Lets get to it…

Love this part! The following Last Option tracks came from their Bandcamp page and were released in 1987. This is going to be a then and now moment, as you continue on to the recently released videos!
This is, “Guilty By Association”
I had to share this sick video from Micheal Sayers when he shared it on San Diego Blather’s Facebook page. This song is off Last Option’s newest EP. Don’t you wish you could jump in that crowd?
Also from Micheal Sayers’s YouTube account, released on Jan. 08, 2020, this is, “Set It Off”. Tell me if you noticing familiar bands and flyers AND if you can relate to the lyrics. I can.
