BAD MACHINE: Rip Your Heart: CD

If I tell some of you that this is Finnish punk rock and roll, you’re gonna go buy it no matter what my review says. (Someday, it is my great hope that Scandinavia will invade the US, put Turbonegro on the radio, and give us all free health care; but I digress.) The Bad Machines play old school punk rock and roll, in the Pagans vein. Unlike a lot of punk rock’n’roll these days, this is actually pretty catchy. Plus they all have long hair and two of ‘em wear cowboy hats. Those crazy Finns! If this were a cereal, it’d be some Finnish cereal. (Sorry, I am no expert in Scandinavian breakfast food!)
