RE-VOLTS: Self-titled: CDEP

This band is made up of 3/5s of the current line-up of the Swingin’ Utters, (Johnny Bonnel and Greg McEntee being the two sitting out). The big difference between the aforementioned band and Re-Volts is that Spike Slawson takes the lead vocals on five of the six tracks featured here. The result is a damn good EP that sounds a lot like the Swingin’ Utters melodic punk but slightly more power popish due to Spike’s smoother (not in the shitty modern R and B sense of the word) and more varied vocals. There’s really not a weak track here and it’s worth a listen.
