The Bronx truly epitomise the best qualities and excesses of gritty, dirty rock 'n' roll. Like the bastard offspring of the Stooges and the Hives, raised on a diet of sleaze, drugs and guitars, these guys are a musical rabbit punch, residing somewhere in a filthy netherworld between punk, metal and hardcore.
The fact that this was recorded as a band, rather than multi-tracked adds to the raw feel. Gravel throated vocals fight for space with a pounding, brutal rhythm section, whilst the guitars buzzsaw their way through the mix.
The songs have a strutting swagger to them, particularly single cut 'History's Stranglers' and 'Around the Horn' This is fresh, real and a break from the wave of tedium that makes up most modern music. The Bronx - a ghetto you'll want to return to.
