Blank Expression were a mid-'90s punk band from Orlando, FL. The Born to Skate 7" EP was released in 1995 on Bluntpunk Records. As far as I can ascertain it was their only release aside from 2 compilation appearances. The cover features a zombie pulling a nice sized frontside ollie in a crazy-8 pool with pretty tight hips. A Mohican skeleton watches from the side while a 2nd skeleton chills on the far side of the bowl. The music definitely sounds like mid-90s DIY punk and reminds me a lot of music I was discovering at that time as I started going to shows in Baltimore (it even includes a ska punk song).
