It was a nice treat getting this record, usually I listen to blur fast Hardcore that elevate your stress levels or bad Pop Punk bands fronted by a disgusting fat drunk singer that sings songs about not getting laid because he can't see his penis. For the record no one gives a fuck if you can't get laid!
Stomper 98 hail from Germany & play Oi! that is accompanied by a saxophone. If this was described to me I probably would have passed, but hearing them was totally different. The sax gave their upbeat punk sound a 50's Rock 'N Roll feel, think Lee Allen & His Band. If you like Rocket From The Crypt and are thinking about becoming a Skinhead, this could be the transitional band you've been waiting for, ha! Just joking!
45 Adapters are a New York Oi! band, they do a song called What's Right, which is about not wanting you chipping in with your two cents about what is right. These guys are gonna smoke, drink, hang out on the streets, & have sex with a new person every single night… in other words, they do what they want! On the 45 Adapters second song they sing about having nothing to prove; not to me, not to you, & definitely not the onethirtyeight.org website, which is a shame since it is Las Vegas’ premier punk website.
As far as Oi! goes I'm not the most up to date on that scene, so I don't know if the guy wearing a Max Resist t-shirt at the Double Down Saloon would like this (no shit I saw a guy like that), but I liked both bands big time & I found this record to be a refreshing burst of melody between Gehenna & Iron Reagan records. If you like Punk Rock like Oxymoron, Anti Heros, & Bonecrusher I’m sure you will like this. Available from Randale Records.
