Maximum Rock N Roll

In the September issue of MRR (accidentally labeled October):

I dig these skins from NYC; they have a classic early UK skin sound kinda like INFA RIOT or the BUSINESS , but mix it with bass-heavy 70's rock licks like THIN LIZZY or some shit. I know - sounds shitty? No way...total sing-along goodness. Good shit.

B1 Throw It Out

B2 Brand New Good Old Days

As an intro: to all you old school boot boys out there, do yourself a favor and check out these newer bands. I know what you are going to say, they cannot be as good as the old stuff and that surely they are just carbon copies with no soul or passion. I know I have felt that way from time to time also, but trust me here.... some of the new bands are great. While time will tell if they will uphold as well as the old stuff has, some of these bands are great right now and deserve some notice.

One of these bands I speak of is the 45 Adapters. I already did a short review of their double 10' Collected Works Vol.1. Now I am going to get in depth with their singles.

The single starts of with the title track. The guitar intro hits you like a strobe light fast, tight and blurring. This sound gives almost a new wave feel to the song. The bass comes in and gives a blunt bouncy deep sound that works great with the guitar. Next and the most refreshing and shocking thing happens: the singer Pickabar (Yes that is the name they have under his picture on the album) starts to sing. I mean sing with a smooth soulful voice that has a nice deep tone to it and some range. Amazing I mean just amazing. All of this great music you would think the lyrics would be a let down. They aren't!! I say they are the best part. A witty attack on those too serious to have fun at a show (come on, we've all seen them!) and I took it a thinly veiled attack on white power boneheads calling them zombies. The line that resonates with me is "Music is more then sound it's a lightning bolt from you to the ground. It's a beat that makes us whole; anyone can feel it if they've got a soul."

The first B side song is Throw It Out. The intro guitar has a great tone to it and the bass line dances through the whole track. "Pickabar" sings with authority and sounds great. What really sets this track apart is the lyrics. Yet again they stay away from the cliches of the scene and sing a song about mental health. Talking about the physical and mental junk we all pack around. Hands down some of the best song lyrics I have heard in some time.

The last song on the B side is Brand New Good Old days. In the same vein as the first two tracks with a bouncy bass and drum sound. Guitar comes over the top and adds the highlights to their sound. Just really tight music led by a great voice. Fun well written song about skinhead glory days passed and bringing them back. Pickabar really wails on this track it is awesome.

This should be your starting point if you have not heard this band before. To all you old timers out there do yourself a favor and check out some of these new bands, they are pretty good.
