Engerica There Are No Happy Endings Album

Engerica are a real enigma. They seem to have the ability to blur genre boundaries with a single riff. Just when you think you've got them pegged as shouty punk rock, they blast back with a riff that would not be out of place on a classic grunge album, before coming on like a hybrid of the Police and Motorhead! This is truly an album that needs you to peel away the layers. They could be so many different things to so many different people, its difficult not to recommend. Lyrically they are plain bizarre. Childlike rhymes about 'gay hair' and 'liar, cheater, bogey eater' put the songs firmly tongue in cheek, although whose cheek is unsure. Hard to define, but easy to like (as long as you don't try to categorise them!)
