GONADS, THE: Glorious Bastards: CD

Jan 11, 2011

New release from this long-running U.K. punk band. Songs about drinking, screwing, and more drinking. There’s also a brief history lesson included on “Billy McFadzean” as well. I had to laugh at “Badly Done” when the Lionel Ritchie reference popped up. “John King Is a Veggie” and “Re-Infected” are my favorites on this eighteen-track record. The only downfall here is “Tesco Lorry,” which is a direct lift from a New York Dolls song. Otherwise this is an enjoyable listen that will go well with your favorite lager.
