PAGE OF PUNK, A / WEREWOLVES ON MOTORCYCLES: Japan Tour: 7”

Jun 13, 2014

A Page Of Punk starts off with a couple songs of shout-along thrash, then slows it down for some anthemic punk on the final few (Yes, they contributed seven songs to this record). There are gang vocals everywhere, and the music is punchy and clear. It’s impossible not to smile at this, especially “No War No Cry.” From Japan, Werewolves On Motorcycles are from the English town Stoke-on-Trent, which I Googled, and got these recent headlines: “£1 houses: the starting price to bring hope back to Stoke-on-Trent’s streets” and “Is Stoke-on-Trent home to the nation’s worst view?” along with a piece on “badger culling.” Their sound is darker and angrier, with songs about cops and masturbation.
