An interview with singer Justin Sane
Loud, proud and more Oi than ever. One of the forerunners of early English street punk, The Business have been tooling around for over twenty years.
It’s pretty impossible to do anything new with punk, it’s a matter of doing the same goddamn thing loud, pure, and energetically. That’s what The Briefs do.
The Beautys’ singer, Kathleen, decides on “All Fucked Down” to let us know she’s not the vindictive type, thanks for sharing.
Using every punk-pop/power pop cliché so well, ya can’t help but smile. There’s nothing here you haven’t heard, but it’s all strung together energetically.
Yellowcard, although sentimentally-heavy and eager to dish out sugary breakdowns, take their cues from the real deal: Whippersnapper, No Use For A Name, etc.
Doctor Dream died after releasing “Better Days” and “Kicked in the Teeth Again,” and it knocked the stuffing outta Welt, They regrouped for Brand New Dream.
Two punk bands get together and cover The Beatles’ “White Album” in its entirety. In Spanish. Charlie Manson’s diggin’ it.
The punk side is reminiscent of Snuff. The ska side is not so easily pinned down. I’m not a fan of distorted guitar in ska, but this band may turn me around.
