It's For Your Own Good

This has been a frantic year for this three piece punk outfit from Melbourne. It released it's first EP, Hellbound, at the start of the year and then earned the support slot for green haired trendsetters Green Day. So it is no surprise that this CD's first track, From Here On In, has a distinct similarity to the American band. But that is where all similarities end.
On this second EP, English Army, One More Cell, Stay Away From Me, Problem and 10:15 Saturday Night set themselves apart with the sound embracing all that is punk. Ska and rockabilly are interspersed through the songs which set the head rocking and the feet stomping. The guitars have a harsh resonating sound and Chris Cheney's vocals are brilliant.

Perhaps Green Day's Billy Joe Armstrong could listen and learn. This album is true punkerama.
