REVOLVERS/DUANE PETERS AND THE HUNNS: Split: CD

Hunns: I’ve never been a fan, but I picked this up primarily to give ‘em another chance. As with other releases I’ve heard both by the Hunns and US Bombs, I don’t find the tunes here particularly awful or anything, but I also don’t find them especially inspiring, either. To me, they sound like a bunch of old dudes going through the motions in an attempt to recapture their gloriously misspent youth rather than a band rooted in the now and desperate to make their mark, and that just don’t cut the mustard. Revolvers: Mid-tempo, power-poppy punk along the lines of Cocksparrer and the like. No big whoop, but they don’t exactly suck, either.
