a2184348725_2The new single from The Fiascos arrived at Rockbrat HQ and it’s a corker.  If you dig old school ‘77 style punk with a modern edge and infectious pop overtones – look no further than this lot.  Melodic pop punk with hooks galore and catchy as, ‘Olivia’ is instantly likeable. If you dig The Wildhearts / Hey Hello  – this is right up your alley. It’s a rifforama, yet also super melodic, with layered harmony vocals and sing along chorus too. Why ain’t I hearing this on the radio ?  ‘Built For Speed’ is on the flipside and it’s also a killer tune. Faster tempo yet still super melodic, complete with a spoken word breakdown. I was a big fan of both the New Bomb Turks and Turbo AC’s, and if you need a reference point, this tune sits somewhere in between – yet I can also hear a lot of Honest John Plain in this tune as well. That’s a good thing in my book!  The guitars on both tracks are way up front, with Richie and Keef both rippin’ guitar players. These cats hail from Croydon, South London (only a short double decker bus ride from where Mr Rockbrat and I used to live in Bromley) and they have a web site where you can pick up these killer tunes for the generous price of only a quid per song. They also have a facebook page so you can also keep track of any gigs. Can’t wait for an album. Recommended!
