Night Marchers : Allez Allez

To fans of new-school punk rock & roll John “Speedo” Reis is something of a legend: having played starring roles in such critically-adored outfits as Drive Like Jehu, Rocket From The Crypt and Hot Snakes his well-earned reputation precedes him and as such Allez Allez – the second album from his latest project Night Marchers – comes highly anticipated. It doesn’t disappoint. Over the course of twelve balls-to-the-wall riot anthems, Reis and friends -Hot Snakes bandmates Gar Wood and Jason Sinclair plus CPC Gangbangs’ Thomas Kitsos – thunder like thawed-out, speed-addled Neanderthals from one career touchstone to another: the Snakes’ angular riffage, Jehu’s hardcore muscle and the burning soul of the RFTC good time revue, all topped off with bright, brash pop melodies and attitude to spare. The album’s out now on Reis’ Swami Records label; listen to “All Hits” below.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
