UNCOUTH, THE: “Just a Matter of Time” b/w “All You Fascists”: 7”

Four oi boys playing gruff streetpunk laced with rock’n’roll licks, in the tradition of Blitz, Cock Sparrer, and company. “Just a Matter of Time” is about as standard-issue as the Docs and Fred Perrys worn by every band member in the cover photo, but that’s not necessarily a crime in this subgenre. They do mix it up on the B-side with a swingy, piano-heavy cover of Woody Guthrie’s “All You Fascists Bound to Lose” that gave me Kings Of Nuthin’ flashbacks from fifteen years ago and actually kind of rips. –Indiana Laub (Teenage Heart, [email protected], teenageheartdistro.com)
