DYSNEA BOYS: I Scare Me: LP

A brand new offering from Berlin’s Dysnea Boys is something to celebrate. Thirteen off-kilter numbers that have me thinking of San Francisco and in particular the early Thrasher Skate Rock compilations. It is no surprise since vocalist Jason Honea once fronted Bay Area legends Social Unrest. This album really takes me back to my earliest dalliances into punk. I can absolutely hear this blasting out of a boom box on the deck of a ramp or edge of our secret section of concrete ditch. It warms my heart. The songs have a churning groove to them that you don’t hear all that often in punk and hardcore these days. This German/American/Canadian/Scottish punk rock coalition really do something that needs to be heard to be believed. Now if only they’d come to North America to tour! –Ty Stranglehold (The Black Lodge Berlin)
