DENNIS MOST: Instigate Me!!: CD

Sep 23, 2011

I wasn’t expecting much from this CD-R with no real artwork and very little information. What I was able to dig up on the interwebs is that Dennis Most is an old school punk rocker whose history playing music goes back to the 1970s, including with his band The Instigators. There are seven songs on here that come in at eighteen minutes, so nothing is wasted. All the tracks are direct and fun, mixing a combination of ‘70s punk with new wave. Keyboards are prevalent on many songs, leading me to think of a non-hectic, slowed down version of Le Shok, but the stripped down nature reminded me a little of GG Allin. None of the songs are overwhelmingly amazing but they’re still competent and inspiring, which is more than I can say for most of the stuff I get to review.
