PERKELE: Punk Rock Army: 7"

Mar 03, 2011

This three-song record came out as an appetizer to the new Perkele full-length and it’s another fine release from this popular Swedish streetpunk band. Fans will especially dig the corny, but awesome acoustic version of the old Perkele staple, “Heart Full of Pride,” exclusive to this 7” only. It was pointed out to me not long ago that skins like some of the wimpiest music imaginable. No one would disagree with that fact, but the detractors with their noses in the air are missing out on some of the catchiest, most lovable bands around. Pride is lame, unless it’s taking pride in adoring seemingly asinine music. How asinine is it, then?
