PLAN OF ATTACK: Stick to Your Guns: LP

May 20, 2014

Tattoo flash-styled album art of a pirate ship. Gorgeous red/orange/black splattered vinyl. Gruff, thick-necked oi with a propensity for wanky guitar solos. Lamentations about the workaday world, backstabbers, and binge drinking. Contains the immortal song title “Glass Half Fucked,” which has to be one of the funniest things I’ve ever read in my life. This label has some truly fantastic, convincing bands on their roster (Stranglehold, The Ratchets, Smalltown, Bombshell Rocks, Downtown Struts to name just a few) but Plan Of Attack unfortunately has some work ahead of them to reach that stature—Stick to Your Guns is a competent enough aping of the streetpunk genre (and maybe that’s all they’re shooting for) but for this listener, they’re gonna need a little something-something to separate them from the bevy of other bands that are tilling this particular field.
