Home Of The Brave

Home Of The Brave
(Locomotive Music - 2003)

To be honest the name didn't ring a bell when I first had the CD in my hands. So, I had no expectations when I put the CD in the player. Kicking off the album with Bitch Street the quintet present garage / punk rock. Sure this is a kind of simple music, but that doesn't mean that they aren't able to add something which moves you. The music of Mike Sobieski and his pales is good time rock with some punk attitude like we know it from British punk bands like the Sex Pistols. The opening track has a positive, a party feeling. The next track is Pretty Legs which is heavier. Grooving and remind me of some old tune... Some track of The Who. Perhaps coz it carries the atmosphere of the early days of the British... With Drunken Zombies they speed up, a fast punk'n'roll track. This one offers screaming guitars and a solo which fits to the song. With Best Left Alone they present a slow one, a doomy one with a slight­ly touch of Southern Rock, but then it get a little fast for awhile. An interesting song which is different to the rest of the album. Their idea of a ballad is probably what you can hear on One More Cry which is a slow, more mellow song. Only the noisy guitar build a bridge to the punk rock roots. Home Of The Brave represents the album in a better way with his late 70's punk sound. This one revives the vibe of that days. Real cool!
