The latest reviews:


Bakers Dozen - Frightener

Askania Productions/Oldschool Records - CD -


1223_bd_fright.jpg7th album of this Scottish band and 11th if we count splits is out due to cooperation of Askania and Oldschool Records. CD is packed in perfect digipack with CD and DVD inside with documentary called Still Divided from the Masses on it with comments on Dozen from other bands. On CD are eight new songs and even the musicians are different (guys from Thumbscrew), you may hear the typical Dozen sound with Jon Scott on vocals. First song Frightener kicks you in the balls with nice refrain and it is about what happened when you piss off wrong people. Then come The Offense which is spit into the face of British justice who betray many people due to power of the press (song has perfect guitar solo at the end). Ode to Mediocrity is about all those reunions of small local bands from 77 which made comeback, big tour and then split up again, in A Complaints Been Raised is perfect solo again and it si about complaints which no one cares about. Fifth one is The Lines have Been Drawn and it is about anger of people who goes on the streets for direct actions, Up with the Lark is about some bills, taxes and work…and again perfect solo guitar in both songs. See it, Say it, Sorted is true story about how ex-solider save the bus from the terrorist attack and the last one Razorblade Alliance is description where the band stand and what they think about it. On DVD which has around one hour and twenty minutes are many archive materials from the gigs in Britain (oldest one is from 1999) and also from Skinhouse Menfis in Germany where our band Disdainful played with them back in 2006. There are comments from Dozen´s friends like Pressure 28, Queensburry Rules, Retaliator and Breakout. Booklet is perfect with lyrics, photos and description of the album and DVD from Jon. Album is out also on LP with different (nicer) cover. Perfect.

Strike First - Wolves

Rebellion Records - LP -


1222_sf.jpgStrike First from Atlanta was built on the ashes of DDC which were going to release brand new album this year. So instead of this there is a debut record from Strike First released on LP (100 black and 200 splattered) From DDC there is singer and guitarist Wynn who played also in Fatskins. On LP are 8 songs including Bring It On Down from Oasis (in harder version) and re-recorded version of Fight Like Hell (about fighting the cops) which was released on split with Assault and Battery in 2015 (and I think there is different singer). Song The Enemy can be checked on https://youtu.be/2DOmCRVoD-s. You should expect perfect streetrock with nice guitar/guitars and playful bass and singalongs (check the last Wolves for example). It is hard to pick some song which is above the others. The first one Unbreakeable is anthem dedicated to all friends and family which are behind you, next one Dead End Boys is about all backstreet kids, The Flame is about the spirit which is inside you no matters how old are you and Dirty Kids which is similar to Dead End Boys. Inside is paper with lyrics, photos and destroyed bomber. Perfect streetrock!
