NIGHT OF TREASON - Gentlemen and Hooligans
These guys registered as a blip on my radar a few years back, but disappeared again, as I’m not a big fan of covers bands, and that’s how NIGHT FOR TREASON started out seven years ago, playing punk rock classics. It would appear this was time well spent, as they have evolved into something much more, their own numbers sound like the best of the class of 76/77 and the second wave of punk bands from the early 80’s put through a blender with a splash of power/pop. In other words their tunes are Doc Martin stomping sing-along chorus chanting guitar lickin’ little gems delivered with power and passion, that shine brightly in the darkness. Get over to their Reverbnation page where you’ll find their 2009 four track Gentlemen and Hooligans EP available to download for free! Their debut album Gentlemen and Hooligans is out sometime this month, on their own Night Of Treason Records.
