5.0 out of 5 stars Street punk par excellence, 4 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Highball Roller (Audio CD)
Ballsier than Rancid, more melodic than Social Distortion and with more riffs than the two of them combined, this is the sound of both those bands having an almighty tear-up with the Wildhearts over the bar tab in the parking lot outside an LA dive bar when they all been awake for days chonging too much bugle up their hooters. This is street punk par excellence, made by a bunch of dudes who know every trick in the book and aren't afraid to use them, even though they're really old enough to know better. Highball Roller is a collection of brilliant songs celebrating the down and the dirty, the losers, the wasters, the outsiders, and above all the sheer cathartic power of proper rock n roll. Fans of all the above bands will find much to love about this record, as will anyone who's ever had their heart stolen by The Replacements maverick stance. It's a shame that the band are on an indefinite hiatus as this is a stunning debut, brimming with the promise of more to come, that really deserves a proper sequel. Outstanding.
