The latest reviews:


Núcleo Duro - Botas

Força Bruta Records - EP -


1162_nd_botas.jpgFourth EP from this hooligan band from Lisboa (whose 1st EP was released back in 2011) was released again on Forca Bruta Records and this black cover is limited to 69 copies, second version – green is limited to 50 pieces. If you have problem to imagine how sound hard, cruel and brutal Oi!, just take your time and listen to Núcleo Duro. You will hear also keyboards (like in songs Sempre a Combater and Freak) which gives to their music special feeling (but I will put there also saxophone like on their Ódio Eterno EP) and sometimes too much distorted guitar (Freak). The sound is in the traces of 80´s/90´s French bands like Warboots mixed with US latino Oi! like Klase Dirigente or Venganca Tatuada. Together you may check four song called Botas, Sempre a Combater (Always Fighting), Freak and Curva Sul (with great bass). Cover is done in very simply (as usual compared to their previous EP´s), inside is paper with lyrics plus photo in the background with boys from Curva Sul in action on the pitch. I really do not know more about the band, just their email. Cruel, hard, true, fuckin´ limited and the best release they´ve done yet!

Boot Boys Social Club - Obrazy smutku

DIY - CD -


1161_bbsc_os.jpgThird full album (and fourt official release) from BBSC is out again in DIY style and it is called (Pictures of Sadness). There are some line up changes again – second guitarist moved to bass. Together you may check 10 songs in Czech. After the first hearing I have to say that this is the best album they´ve released! Music is calmer middle rhythm (so do not expect some heavy stuff), guitar is playful (just check songs Obrazy smutku, Parazit, Divadlo loutek or Naše zem) and I really like Vlasta´s vocals which is not hard or rough and it fits well to the music. Album has also great lyrics which are meaningful and serious so occupation and its consequences (from the Russians point of view - Ие КоLопII, USA – Okupant - Occupier or both - Studená válka – Cold War), hard 50´s when communist system were destroying everything normal around (title one Obrazy smutku – Pictures of Sadness), drugs (Divadlo loutek – Puppet Theater), celebrities which are “famous” just due to their scandals (Produkt doby – Product of the Time) or distorted picture of skins which you know from media (Skinhead Story). Most of all I like Naše zem (Our Country) which has slow beginning just with bass and the title one Obrazy smutku. Booklet is also best from the stuff they´ve released – all lyrics, hand-drawn thematic pictures and band photo. Since 2012 when they have released their debut album they have done a lot of work which end in this album which is really great!
