OILY BOYS: Cro Memory Grin: LP

Jan 26, 2021

Sydney’s Oily Boys play a brand of hardcore that hits both hard and fast as well as being able to descend down a path of pure chaos. Basically going from being on point and all on the same page to a state where band members aren’t even in the same book. Those extremes help make this such an exhilarating listen and conjures up some crazy images of what the band would be like live. Oily Boys is pushing all the right buttons for me at the moment. The shitstorm that is 2020 requires an appropriate soundtrack and this, despite its unhinged quality, is proving to be quite cathartic for me. –Rich Cocksedge (Static Shock, [email protected], staticshockrecords.limitedrun.com)
