Don’t let the name fool you. This isn’t some wanna-be Johnny Thunders bullshit. These guys are (or were?) no-frills hardcore from Australia. The songs are simple and to the point, and, as result, pack more of a punch. The energy is hyper and delivered with a confident “fuck you” attitude. Something about this makes me think of Out Cold, but crossed with Cleveland hardcore from the ‘90s to early 2000s. Maybe it’s the whole “don’t give a fuck about the current trend” attitude that’s here? The Dead Boys cover is meh, but the rest is pretty good.
