Buck Brothers - Me
Buck Brothers bring teary-eyed memories of Gang Green or Dictators; though the sound on this loud, fast and snotty record is pure 1977 London, American alcoholic punk is also given props.
This trio’s debut is full of sing-along choruses and 2 chord anthems. I dare you to listen to "Liar" "Gorgeously Stupid," "Girls, Boots, Skirts, Bikes" and not either jump for joy or immediately seek out someone you’ve always wanted to roll, and joyously do so. Hell, 12 songs in 35 minutes is what made planet great so a minute there, and Buck Brothers delivers the goods on every tune.
In keeping with the times, their punk is infused with a little power pop to offer passing glances at melody, but that only makes you love them more; they’ve listened to The Jam as well as the Pistols and Dead Boys. Bassist/singer Andy Duke, guitarist Pete Sellers, and drummer Alice Bones have plugged in and let it rip, and I’d be happy to have them tell me to go fuck myself anytime. They already have with "Me," and I’m better for it.
