Scandal – on a roll

For the ones that want to know a bit of Romanian punk history, you must listen and check to Scandal. They have been around since ’97 under the name: Speedy Freak (long time ago in a galaxy far, far away), and change the name later on in Scandal. They have released for our „scene” two materials (Live in Beci in 2001 and Resturi Din Punkomat in 2003), with drink along anthems like „Patrula” and „Bauta”. They moved in UK and with help from Spirit Of The Street Records they have a new LP: „On A Roll”, in vinyl (3 colors) digital and of course on CD. 10 tracks in the old punk rock, young and classic with a rebelious sounds and some sing along parts. Themes about working class, against media brainwash and nostalgia about old hometown plus the sincere sound of a real punk rock, is something to look for on this album. Good for sharing a beer with your mates in a pub cause…it’s just punk rock!!!. Always when i am listening to Scandal i am thinking back to my friends and back to those long summer nights, we all grew up and we will always remember the good times. Check them on scandalstreetpunk.bandcamp.com

Jokerface-ska from Alps

MptyZine promo exclusive for Romania.

Jokerface 2017 - CD Cover (Medium)

This is for sure a band that drives me back 10 years ago in my hometown with my friends dancing like crazy. Jokerface are coming from the Alps in South Tyrol/Italy and are playing a ska/reggae that will go directly to your soul. They have started in 2004 as a punk band but with years they have changed a bit with traditional ska, early 60’s Jamaican beats, a bit of Mod and Rocksteady all together packed with feelings and soul. 10 tracks to skank, share a beer and remember the good old days. My personal favorites: „I Remember”, „Lucky Man” and „Jokerface”. One of the good bands to start in 2018 and one band to check for sure. Check them on facebook.com/jokerfaceska

Rusty Nail-Bitter Ale,Bitter Heart-promo album

Bitter Ale, Bitter Heart is the new album from Rusty Nail, is all about feelings and one of the best albums from the St. Louis band. They are play a celtic-folk with a little bit of punk influences and a lot of drinks. The album is a personal and sad one but in the same time they have the sound of hope and optimism.

The album has 11 tracks, just perfect to listen with a cold rum on the rocks, is a honest album and you can see that the guys invested a lot of feelings in it. About the band i can tell you that they are playing togheter for more than 10 years already and if you like Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly, Tossers, The Pogues than for sure you need to give them credit.

Also this album drive me close to Speed Of Darkness, the album from 2011 of Flogging Molly. Is an album that will trasport you somewhere where is cold but as well will give you enough strength to move on with a smile. Just great.

Mandolin,violin,banjo,accordion,irish whistle,flute,drums,bass,guitar,feelings,friendship,optimism and all the friends with a rum togheter.

Thanks to Chad and Rusty Nail
