Dallas street rock'n'roll. I heard some positive stories about their music, so i wanted to check out their newest record. The vocals sound over the top, the record is pourly produced and the songs don't impress me either. Sorry, not my cup of tea

While not a duplicate, rip-off, or even an homage to the list of bands coming; The Broadsiders find elements of some of my favorite oi/punk bands from the last two decades: Soldier 76, Brassknuckle Boys, No Holds Barred, The Templars, The GC5, and The Bruisers ("Cruisin'..." era). These boys are from Texas and tell you repeatedly. That Lone Star Pride is blunt and obvious. The Texan dirty rock and roll is infused into a blazing punk rock sound; on a strong Oi! backbone.

This is a hard-edged sound on top of an infectious rock and roll foundation. Often there is a frantic idle bubbling of tension backed by a wandering twang of guitar strings. Lots of energy and it is frothing over this tight, crisp unit of chords and drums. Lots of parts to raise a glass to and sing along with.

Note the bullets on the cover. This is Texas. and it ain't the happy part. Are you up for a ride in a broken down truck on a dusty road to nowhere? Grasping rot gut, a warm High Life and a shotgun. The man took half your paycheck, government is taking over, your back hurts, boss cut overtime, society spits on you and your girl is a little too flirtacious with your brother. this is the soundtrack.

Best of the chaotic derisions:
"Southern Identity"
"Modern Times"

With all the records I have been reviewing of Oi! bands with Mod sounds (which I love) it is good to listen to a band that has that classic American Oi and rock & roll sound that I love.

This is the first review I am writing for The Broadsiders and trust me it will not be the last. This is the fourth release of this Texas Oi! outfit and just like their other records, this one is high quality and top notch. On this record you even get more of a southern rock sound with trashy guitars. Do not think for a minute it is any less Oi! This album is American Oi! plan and simple from the heart.

Castle Law comes out of the gate holding no punches. A blunt Oi! sound with touches of rock guitar make this song a keeper. Austin delivers in your face brash lyrics about the right to defend your home with lethal force. Yes, it is a brash song bold and in your face and I love it for that. I agree with the sentiment of this song and it is a throw back to when American Oi was in your face and brash.

Southern Identity is without question my favorite track on this 10". Heavy rock & roll sound. The mix of southern rock guitars and Oi! is near perfect on this track. The song shouts out the pride they have for the region of this great country. They follow up that barn burner with another hard rocker about..... you guessed it Texas. I love the line in the song "so you can go to hell and I'll go to Texas." Two really good songs. The final track on the A side is Lion's Den. Nice mid tempo rocker about a hard man living a hard life on the streets. I like the way the chorus works on this song followed up by some nice heavy drumming.

Reaction is the first track on the B side. This track has that classic American Oi! feel to it with Austin singing lyrics of Frustration and the whiskey soaked violence it can lead to. I like how they take a song about violence (God knows, there are one million Oi! songs about this) and show it from the inside. He is not writing about how tough he is, he is saying he is so angry that the bomb in his head will blow.

They follow that up with Face Value, probably my least favorite track on this record. It is good just not as good as the others. Modern Times finishes this record off. What a great song to finish this Hammer of a record off with. This one has it all: a great sound, nice sing-along parts, and good lyrics delivered with passion and soul.

Threr are a lot of good bands coming out of Texas and I have to say The Broadsiders are the cream of the crop.
