Amyl & the Sniffers - Amyl & the Sniffers

What you see is exactly, exactly what you get. From starter's block to finishing tape. Australian Punk rockers Amyl & the Sniffers finally release their debut self-titled album and it sounds exactly. exactly as you would expect. Unreconstructed raw punk rock that you could hear everywhere in 1977 and '78 without the slightest update or hint of an apology.

Not that they need to apologise for anything. This is fun. Relentless, good time stuff. right the way through. Highlighting how Punk owed a debt to Trad Rock elements as well as The Stooges, MC5 and Dolls, how it certainly wasn't always about being cool so much as sheer release. There are many who will readily convert to this.
