8ROOF: Yeah! If You Can: CD

Aug 13, 2009

This frenetically fierce trio of jet-propelled Japanese noise-makers jubilantly blast a fun and upbeat barrage of Descendents/Generation X-style pop punk that’s raucously bellowing with thick chunky shards of Cheap Trick-like hooks and harmonies. On top of that, toss a loud hefty dose of The Clash, Sex Pistols, and Dils into the mix for good mayhemic measure! While continuously listening to the addictive punkrock clamor of 8Roof, I just could not sit still. My feet steadily tapped along to the pure rhythmic joy contained herein, my hips uncontrollably swiveled, my head buoyantly bounced around in a fit of hyperactive giddiness, and my hands were in constant air-guitar mode. Man, 8Roof are among the most energetically engaging song-destructionists my enfeebled old ears have had the pleasure of hearing in a very long time. They’re a whirlin’ rip-roarin’ tsunami of sound, and I’m utterly completely blown away!
