REVIEW: Bishops Green – Back To Our Roots

bishopsbacktoourrootsBishops Green – Back To Our Roots
CD 2016 Rebellion Records

Bishops Green is one of those new breed street punk bands that I’m really fond of since their beginning. With this ‘Back To Our Roots’ release the bands goes back to their roots bringing good sounding, straightforward, catchy and melodic sing-along streetpunk.

The album offers brand new recordings for both Rebellion Records and Randale Records! On each label the band will release a “Back To Our Roots” 7”-single. Part one is out on Rebellion, part two on Randale. All songs are also released on one CD by Rebellion Records. This CD release contain the new songs and the covers ‘Burn The Bastards’ (originally recorded by The Lancasters) and ‘Do Anything you Wanna Do’ (by Eddie and the Hot Rods) plus the track ‘Christmas In New York’ from the compilation ‘Cashing In On Christmas’ vol. 5 (Black Hole Records) as a bonus track.

This album is a must have for the Bishops Green fans but also for every one who is fond of melodic street punk. 8,5/10

1. Wake Up
2. Burn The Bastards
3. Trouble
4. Do Anything You Wanna Do
