Jack The Lad – Av It!
7” 2015 Rebellion Records
‘Av It!’ Is the début single from a brand new UK band featuring members of British Oi! and punk bands. They started in 2013 playing Oi! and punk covers from the 80’s: Cock Sparrer, Cockney Rejects, …. Now the band recorded two songs of their own for this 7”.
The songs on ‘Av It!’ sound very British and traditional, it is that classic 80s Oi!/punk sound that still works the best after all these years. Also, ‘You Can Have It’ has a Ramones (Blitzkrieg Bop) vibe going on and I certainly don’t mind when they borrow from the masters of punk rock. Based on these two songs, ‘Jack The Lad’ has a bright future ahead and I’m looking forward to a full-length because this début sounds very promising. 8/10
