Surprise of the month

What an ugly cover art my friend. The kind of CD you avoid at all cost due to its ugly cover art. And in fact, you should not !!!

If you like The Offspring, you should definitely check this record as soon as possible, because it fuck*ng rocks. This pop-punk-rock bands delivers songs like rockets, full of melodies targeting immediately the listener. Pop The Corr, The Chameleon are digested within the first play and your brain will ask you to hit the play button again, again and again .... especially if you like punk-rock stuff.

The production is crystal clear and it is going damned fast. The type of punk-rock I really like. The kind of record that deserve to be in your car at full volume. Every song is a "sunny hit" and this is may be the first band able to concurrence the throne to The Offspring. Logical if you know that Gigantor have invented what is called today melodic punk-rock ... 12 years ago ! Respect !

What else can I say? Asia No Junshin is a punk song, with Japan lyrics and this song is also a funny hit (Gigantor is enormous in Japan). Back To The Rockets smells the sun, girls and California. This German punk band is playing the type of music that will help you to overcome (or forget) your daily problems immediately. What a lesson of music-party !

I am still wondering who has accepted this awful cover art ??? Anyway ... a must for fans of punk-rock. A must composed of 18 killers !!!

Killing Songs :
San Fran Disco, Asia No Junshin, The Chameleon, Eye Hate Dog
