The Booked – Feel the Pride – Review

The Booked

Feel the Pride (Radical)
by Scott Hefflon

Gritty, tough, street punk/Oi! like GMM and TKO have been steadily releasing, Texas’ The Booked are workin’ class punk for hard knocks punks. The usual litany of topics: class, hard work, strength through unity, fighting and soccer are worked into the gruff vocals, with the driving, thick-sounding roar of guitars and slamming drums at their back. There’s a touch more melody than you might think, but don’t expect the whoas to sound all pretty and shit, if you know what I mean.
