Calling all Punkdom! £L& (Poundland) has hit the streets looking for a mohican and a brawl with a mod!
Ever wondered what an impromptu punk gig in an 80’s arcade would sound like? Well here’s your answer…and it’s pretty freaking cool.
The album kicks off with ‘Lord of the Pies’ which, whilst short and sweet (well, short and raucous), is anthemic and clearly a call out to the people. So plug in and listen up!
The pacy ‘Murdathugs’ has an element of Ian Drury on amphetamines, whilst ‘Car Crash Drunks’ would be a perfect theme tune for a modern day ‘Only Fools & Horses’ with its head nodding, blues-punk sound.
£L& is brimming with dystopian messages, surging guitars, energy and the blood, sweat and tears of the indomitable DannyDangerously.
Beefy, raw and emotive, ‘Fuck The Torys’ along with the title track ‘£L&’ are stand out tracks – the kind that slap you in the face and give you a serious wedgie before you even realise what’s happened.
Only a limited number of first presses have been released, so if you’ve got your hands on it, you’re one lucky punk.
In the words of David Bowie ‘to be played at maximum volume.’
This tune is instantly appealing and the lyrics are beautifully crafted and delivered with real passion. There is a hint of Bowie-meets-Buzzcocks in this tune but Wolves At The Door definitely have a style of their own. Dan Martin’s vocals are powerful and his searing vibrato builds up the intensity of the emotion in the chorus.
These guys are seriously tight. The beefy rhythm section packs a punch, energetically driving the track and adding texture with changing beats. ‘Forgiveness’ is immensely addictive and Wolves At The Door are exploding onto the music scene. The only question is ‘Are You Ready?’
The Jellycats are a Ska-Punk band with a fierce energy and upbeat groove and ‘T-W-A-T’ (taken from their debut album which can be downloaded free here http://thejellycats.bandcamp.com/) shows that these guys mean business.
Instantly hooky, this track is filled with attitude, awesome vocals and a kick ass guitar solo. It really is the stuff that ska-filled dreams are made of.
These guys are immense. Chunky guitar, gritty vocals and raw energy that knows no bounds. What more could you ask for?!
‘Pieces Of You’ is a meaty, raucous offering which makes the listener want to dive straight into the first available mosh pit. Topped off by great melody and a superb solo, the band’s musical passion literally pours out of this tune.
Seriously you need to see these guys live. Like now.
There is only one glaring question: Who is Trevor? And why do they have his head? (ok, two questions…)
