Don't ask me why the hell I scanned it all a little bit bevel... ;-)
("Sunny Bastards Records"; CD):
Here's the next review up here and the next one on a release of the bavarian Streetpunk Rockers of the LAZY BASTARDS, and this is the review of me on their current one, their newest release titled "HARD LINES AND SWEET SOUNDS" from 2012 done via "SUNNY BASTARDS RECORDS". And, yes, I know that I primarly planned and wanted to do a review of their second release, the split 7'' with THE DROOGIEZ but however so now I decided to change this planned working schedule a little bit simply due to the fact that I listened to this here really often over the last days and weeks and so here's the review on their newest one for you by me. Like I've already written in the review on the debut of them that I had done some days or so ago they started as a pretty ordinary melodic more or less pretty modern (what ever this now may exactly ever mean...) Streetpunk band that did a solid to good job but failed to shine out of the crowd. On their second release, the already mentioned split 7'' with THE DROOGIEZ, they already showcased and displayed a pretty strong development just to end up here for the moment, on their current new release, "HARD LINES AND SWEET SOUNDS", with delivering one hell of a strong sing a long focussed hard hitting and sharp striking yet catchy and melodic and very hymnal and anthemic Streetpunk album and with being on of the very best current and active bands in or on or of this sector. Compared with their debut CD EP release they changed their drum player and in all they really made a truly huge step forward. The songwriting is by far more tight and focussed and the sing a longs are so incredible forceful that you simply can't refuse them to show their whole force and pure larger than life hymnal character and its impact on you during you listen to their music and songs. It's all there what you want if not even need: Fast paced and sharp aimed played hard hitting yet very catchy and melodic guitar work, a nicely but still strong in the background (but not too far in the background) buzzing and sawing bass work, damn tight cracking and heavy pounding forceful drumming, sharp spitted and rough voiced yet anthemic styled throaty sung lead vocals (nicely ''drunken/thirsty'' styled done but thankfully no awefull ''wasted on a drink'' stuff) and mighty full throttle high energy background chants and mighty powerul sing a longs. Beside this expect mostly fast pace of the songs, but yet still cool and strong arrangements, within the whole fast running Streetpunk machinery  you will find a lot of nice suprises if you just listen with some good attention to the album and its songs, a lot of different moods are awaken by the songs, and with the slow paced and melancholic "BETWEEN LOVE AND HATE" and the somehow Country or so influenced "WOKE UP" also the whole guys that just listen on a superficial level to albums will find some big open suprises that probably no one would ever have expected to get to hear from the guys in the LAZY BASTARDS crew. It's all there, it's all here, and it's done so damn good and strong and so fucking tight and also so incredible catchy and hymnal that this is just a damn strong shining Streetpunk album that you really need to have and call your very own if you are (still) only a little bit into (great) Streetpunk music. The ingredients may sound not so creative and original and pretty genuin or common, but they do it so damn fresh and alive/lively and strong and enthusiastic that it is really exciting and just great, so they really have what it takes to shine and stick out of the crowd, and if you like your Streetpunk somewhere between COCK SPARRER, RANCID, TIME AGAIN, ROGER MIRET & THE DISASTERS, and OXYMORON then you will for sure celebrate this band and album like fuck. Also strong and nicely diverse lyrics, a full energy production sound, a great artwork, and energy and dynamic and also attitude non stop we get as well. Great Streetpunk, very sympathic and authentic, highly recommended for anyone who still likes a good healthy strong dose of great fresh Streetpunk. Get it!!! Also live on stage this band is a pure bomb so make sure to check them out if you have the chance to see them live on stage, and if you know that the AFA/ARA SHARP/RASH ''OiRE SZENE'' and Co. guys label them as a band somehow linked and open to the far right wing and that this LAZY BASTARDS simply don't give a damn about this defaming lies and witchhunting bullshit and also make this clear in their song "KICK THEM OUT" you should know that this guys are also some of the good guys out there. Cheers & Oi! Oi! Oi! (9 of 10 points)
