RATCHETS, THE: Gotta Be Cool: Flexi 7”

Pirates Press Records release a barrage of records annually. If that’s overwhelming to some, don’t let it be. The bands on this label are very consistent. And, if you’re a streetpunk connoisseur like I am, that’s important, because this stuff can get boring if not done properly. Pirates Press always delivers. The Ratchets are no exception. “Gotta Be Cool” is more in a Clash/Randy vein than, say, a Bruisers or Vanity way. A great track; I look forward to more. –Steve Adamyk (Pirates Press, piratespressrecords.com)
