CLUSTER BOMB UNIT - Last Band Standing EP
Review in MRR
having gone through a few member and style changes since i first became familiar
with them on their killer 1995 10", here we find the new and improved version of
these german ragers. now featuring a female vocalist ( whose vocals remind me a
great deal of HEALTH HAZARD) and the trademark manic bass work of punk rock super
bassist kelly ( ex-DEFIANCE, RESIST, SEVERED HEAD OF STATE); their current sound
is a little more worked out and more akind to SUFFER ( or the before mentioned
HEALTH HAZARD) than the straight-up DIS-clone workouts of their earlier releases.
extra points for turning a song off the SIMPSONS into a charging d-beat ripper.
( angry, c/o fulvio dogliotti, c.p. 280, 15100 alessandia, ITALY, firstname.lastname@example.org)
Their first new release to grace our turntable in years, CBU is back with probably
their best line-up and sound ever. Raw female vocals (like Provoked / Unhinged)
and Kelly Haliburton on bass really add greatly to this already awesome German punk
band. The lyrics are political (of course) and are written in both German and English.
