WARBOYS U.S.: Man Alive!: CDEP

Mar 20, 2018

There is some goddamn riff rock up in this here joint! This album reminds of the late ‘90s when punk’s speed and stripped-down attitude met head-on with classic rock’n’roll guitar riffage. Bands like Electric Frankenstein, Candy Snatchers, and The Dragons immediately come to mind. Warboys U.S. do it without sounding cheesy or becoming a parody. This seriously rocks. Sure, a song about how much he loves being a mechanic may sound silly on paper, but I’ll be damned if it doesn’t work in my ear holes. –Ty Stranglehold (Mystery School, warboys.bandcamp.com)
