7er Jungs – Skinhead Drinking Time
7” 2013 Randale Records
7er Jungs are back with a new three track 7” of aggressive but melodic skinhead Rock and Roll with their own dark edge. The 7” contains two own songs (A-side) plus a cover (B-side) of ‘I Love Rock and roll’ by Jake Hooker and Alan Merrill from Arrows but probably most famous in the version of Joan Jett & the Blackhearts.
Starting with the B-side, I certainly love this song and consider it, most of the time, an asset to a record when its properly covered and it certainly is on this release.
Back to the A-side, the album starts with a (typical) skinhead party anthem ‘Skinhead drinking time’. With the next song ‘No Time for Fasci–Nation‘ 7er Jungs hits a more serious topic and take a stand against any form of dictatorship, extremism, the prejudice and the lies being spread about them (you know being a German skinhead band and all…). It certainly is done in style here.
Great 7” by these German skinhead rock and rollers. 8/10
