I admit to having a little soft spot for Stomper 98. These German skins have been putting out records for a few years and are always solid stein-hoisting jams. Having Phil Templar on drums adds to their kudos for sure. They throw in a sax, which is usually audio suicide in my book, but they make it work. Top draw skin jams. Brassknuckle Boys have been pushing the American street rock for years now, alongside bands like the Hudson Falcons and GC5. I dig it good enough, but it’s a little flat next to Stomper 98. Decent disc for sure.
