GUV’NORS, THE: The Pint of No Return: LP

Denmark’s Guv’nors are a street punk band that is as influenced by 1970s rock as it is by punk and oi. There’s enough of a cheesy classic rock influence here that you’d expect these skins to have mullets on some of the tracks. But a lot of it is pure, hard, European pub punk. The vocals are razor sharp, gritty, and lovable. This is a split release with Contra Records from Germany and True Force Records from Spain, working with Longshot to deliver the goods. One of the tracks features a guest appearance by Don Powell from Slade. Available on four colors of vinyl, each LP also comes with a copy of the CD version for your convenience.
