Devasted – Hopeless
This is the latest material from Devasted brought to you by One Step Records (Italy) and Mad Butcher Records (Germany). At two years after „Never Give Up” the band from Parma (Italy) is still full of rage, frustration and 100% punk rock with fists in the air. Social problems, politics, street life all packed with clear words and furious choruses, 30 minutes of punk rock mixed with a little of Hardcore makes this album one that you need to listen at full volume.
The band has also toured in many cities around Europe and they are hiting the road again, for their 10 years aniversary. Also they have shared the stage with bands like: Angelic Upstarts, UK Subs,The Adicts or Strawberry Blondes, something special from old school to the new school with influences from Clash and Ramones until Rancid or Pennywise.
The Bankrobbers – Folgen
The Bankrobbers will make your winter hot and your thoughts will be in sunny Jamaica, with their new album Folgen (One Step Records), a 2Tone Ska with a little punk that will make you jump. A good combination and inspiration from bands like: Statuto, Madness, The Specials, Bad Manners or The Clash with a strong antifascist attitude all acompanied by the trumpet sound. If you are looking for a pizza in the sun or you are just a simply working class hero that want to dance then put the dancing shoes, raise the glass, start skanking cause the scooter boys are back in town.
