HANS CONDOR: Breaking & Entering: CD

Jan 21, 2022

Hans Condor were a staple of the Nashville punk scene on and off for nearly fifteen years. Hans Condor bassist and Asschapel frontman Erik Holcombe tragically took his own life in 2018. Breaking & Entering is a collection of the last recordings Holcombe did with Hans Condor during the band’s 2014-2016 revival. This version of the Hans Condor lineup also featured Ryan Sweeney on drums. The band delivers an abrasive, enthusiastic, and damn catchy brand of punk’n’roll, paying tribute to their heroes and direct influences, namely Motörhead, including covering their eponymous song. Additionally, there’s a cover of Government Issue’s “Rock’n’Roll Bullshit.” If you’re into either of the bands that inspired Hans Condor, this is certainly worth a listen. –Paul J.
