BRZYTWA OJCA!: Self-titled: LP

Jul 29, 2013

I can’t read Polish at all, but I do know that this was recorded sometime in the 1980s. Brzytwa Ojca cranked out some driving punk rock with some rough edges. If you like Toxic Reasons and UK Subs, you will probably like these guys. The songs are moderately fast and catchy as hell without being wimpy or saccharine. It has rumbly percussion that sometimes delves into the tribal style, with guitars that sound jagged and dangerous, with vocals that are gruff and forceful. The songs tend to be on the mid-tempo end. Songs like “Atak,” the awesome “Dyktator,” “Destrukcja,” and “Sex Party” are pure burners. Excellent stuff!
