Top Sounds - J

JOLLY FUCKERS - At Home With... {DIY} First off, that band name is fantastic - one that almost guarantees a positive review. What we have here is a trio (66% US East Coast, 34% UK [a Brightonian, so automatically gets the additional 1%]) cranking six songs that have a vaguely vintage feel while doing something resolutely new and fresh sounding - think the early Touch and Go bands, bit of CRUCIFUCKS, bit of FEEDERS, bit of ZOUNDS and a bit of MEAT PUPPETS and you’re kinda there. Each track holds the attention but it’s ‘Palace Intrigues’ and ‘Ribbons’ that really standout. The former is more of a straight-forward Punk track, but with some great almost DEAD KENNEDYS-esque guitar lines while the latter could easily be on a ZOUNDS album. So glad the music lived up to the band name!!  Well worth checking out for something that is a little different, defiantly Punk and with a barbed sense of humour. (30.01.21)
