Nach dem mehr als gelungenen Debut "Flaunting their talents" ist mir nun das zweite Machwerk in die Ohren gekommen. Wer gerne 77er Punkrock und 79er Powerpop hört, für den ist dies ein Pflichtkauf. Zielsicher werden hier catchy Guitars mit Ohrwurm-Melodien gemischt. // USELESS

Side B
2. Gotta Get Paid
3. Police Car

Sprinter Records/Queen Mum Records

Yeah! This is good shit. Short, snotty and to-the-point. There are three songs on this 7" slab o' wax that clock in at about two minutes each, which is perfect for the frenetic, fast-paced punk-rock that is heavily influenced by their English punk rock predecessors like the DAMNED, etc. This could be the UK equivalent to the BRIEFS!

Respecto a los alemanes, cabe indicar el tono en clave de revival mod de guitarras bastante cristalinas. Declaración de principios desde el comienzo con "World's gone mod", la versión de The Urge; guiño a espectros más duros pidiendo la admisión en el "Exploited barmy army" y versión de Die Profis ("Hoffentlich ja!"). "Hit by a bus" tiene maneras de himno, con un comienzo de bajo al que se le acopla enseguida la guitarra. Estructura inicial de arranque similar a la de "Who wants the moon?", para mi de lo mejor. Lo del estribillo de "La máquina de pogo" suena a concesión a la experiencia con el sello español. Tiene guitarras que parecen algo a los Jam, pero con ganas de montar bulla en voces y coros. Un experimento loable esto de la mezcla de nacionalidades en los discos y si encima son con este tipo de resultados... // LAFONOTECA.NET

V.A. Presswerk A-C

Presswerk A-C

Die auf dem Presswerk-Sampler vertretenen Berliner Bands bedienen sich dieser Identitäten und fördern ein wunderbar authentisches Retro-Machwerk zu Tage. Die Protagonisten verschwenden ihre Jugend in vorzüglichen New Wave Projekten ("Moskito Spezial", "Crumpets", "Dreipunktbande" und die populären "Shocks") mit teilweise derbem Elektro-Einschlag ("Herpes", "RobotroN", "The toten Crackhuren im Kofferraum"), oder bedienen sich auf traditionelle Art mehr bei den englischen Vorbildern ("The Not Amused", "Ugly Teens").
Lange nicht mehr einen so guten Sampler gehört! //MOLOKO PLUS
