Checking out a UK punk rock band like Picture Frame Seduction at times is hit and miss. I mean, they have been away for a while, and uk82 punk rock is probably bigger in the usa than the uk. But having checked them out LIVE in Bristol with GBH and then purchasing the new album on the night it is clear to me that these lads are 100 % full on, and still love the music. The title track is SEX WAR and this is the first song. Its blistering stuff, a cross between The Exploited and angry post hardcore US music. But never loses its Brit roots. Throughout the album the band surprise you, AUTUMN RAIN is a rocking track with Rancid / GBH influences and DISAFFECTED progresses UKDK threads with a massive hardcore feel. Some tracks are mid tempo, others are 100 % speed tracks and it really left me wanting so much more.
You just cannot be disappointed with this awesome album. It rocks with tuneful choruses and lead singer Keith is as angry and confrontational as ever. The new line up is sound, but the drummer remains and he really does hit a superb beat to all the tracks. Tight and energetic. This is going to be right up there as one of the punk albums of the year. No worries.
20 Tracks in all. 11 studio and 9 rocking tracks from a LIVE gig last year this is a must must must for lovers of punk rock. I love it already.
