COBRA: Hello! This Is Cobra + ...Is Back: CDs

Jul 13, 2010

Oi stuff from a band that’s apparently been one of Japan’s best kept secrets for quite some time. While ...Is Back is the rawer of the two, it’s Hello! that boasts the catchiest, most anthemic tunes. What lyrics there are in English indicate while they aren’t much deeper or topical than the “let’s get drunk! Oi Oi Oi!” of too many of their American and English peers, they do know their way around a hook, which gives ‘em some additional points.
