Tape/LP 2014 Rookie Distributions

Compatriot is a punkrock/Oi! band from Ciputat South Tangerang, Indonesia who started in 2000. They already were part of a compilation album in 2005, they released the ‘Oi! Never Change Our Ways’ EP on Stay Punk Records in 2007 and in 2014 they are part of a 4 way split album ‘101% PROUD!’ with Red Alert, Foreign Legion and Sta-Prest Boys.

The four songs I received for reviewing are Compatriot’s contribution to the ‘101% PROUD!’ split album. This band has got a very melodic and simple punkrock/Oi! sound, but there’s nothing wrong with simple. The songs, the melodies will easily stick in your head even if you don’t understand a word from song two and four. Every now and then a familiar sound pops up, it seems that they have listened very carefully to their heroes Cock Sparrer, The Last Resort, The Bussiness, … 7/10

Track list:
1. Liar
2. Pagi Yang Indah
3. Listen The Oi!
4. Sol
