STRONGARM & THE BULLIES: You Had It Coming: CD

I almost had these Dutch guys pegged. The tough sounding name and menacing disc cover did plenty to sway my guess and I was somewhat right. Street punk with plenty of sing along parts and good harmonies. The thing I wasn’t expecting was the uniqueness of the singer’s voice. It’s kind of a low growl that struck me as a mix between Lee Ving and Restless Spirit of Drunk Injuns. I like it.
