SCHEISSE MINNELLI / BRONXXX: Swamp Bowl Sessions: 7”

I’ve reviewed both of these bands in these very pages in the past and I am always pleased with what I hear. Both bands play a variance of classic skate rock. I am talking straight off of the Thrasher Magazine compilations of the ’80s. While Scheisse Minnelli lean a little more into the thrash end of things, it isn’t metallic enough to turn me off. Bronxxx dwell in JFA territory and always make me jump around until my knee gives out. I hear that Bronxxx is making the long trek from Japan to British Columbia this summer, so I will finally get to see them play live! –Ty Stranglehold (Beanies, bronxxx.bandcamp.com)
