BOBOT ADRENALINE: Dumb Bomb: CD

Jul 06, 2010

This is another solid effort from L.A.’s punkabilly trio. It’s stuffed to the gills with rockabilly riffs, gang choruses, and armchair politicking. Confronting militarism, war, and poverty, Bobot is the very articulate mouthpiece for the disenfranchised. While The Clash influences bleed through in “East of the Docks” and “Blast,” where the latter’s guitar structures are pretty close to “London Calling,” Bobot is not content to mimic. Striking a balance between melodic sway and roiling drums, I think this is their best work yet. If you’re in the L.A. area, check ‘em out. Recommended.
