DESTRUCTORS, THE: Media Studies: CD

Sep 16, 2011

The Destructors are an English punk band with a history stretching back to the late 1970s. They have a catalog of around thirty releases that can attest to their longevity. Their new record dwells on themes revolving around corporate media, celebrity, and manipulating the public. The music on the twelve-song CD is both punk and British as fuck. The Destructors crafted a solid batch of songs that draw on the rich U.K. punk tradition, exploring sounds from the mid-70s pub rock to the hardcore sounds stretching up to the mid-80s. It’s got a nice mix of energy, abrasion, and hooks for the duration of the record, except for a couple thematic tracks that point in a more spoken word direction.
