LOVELY LADS: The Best You’ve Got: CD

Jul 06, 2010

Released nearly five years back, this brutal release of Boston hardcore-influenced oi is a barrel of fun for the wax head in your life. It’s remarkably campy, bouncy punk that’s one part newish oi, one part 1980s hardcore tribute. The very simple recording suits the aesthetic well. There are some truly remarkable off-key backing vocals that are some of the finest specimens of their type. If alien scientists land on earth to examine discordant punk harmonizing, Lovely Lads will be in their first dozen or so Petri dishes. Now go Nair your head and have some fun.
