CHARGE 69 - Much More Than Music (*A REVIEW*)
For over Twenty years Charge 69 have been France's premier purveyors of Punk Rock. Their latest album Much More Than Music is a best of with a difference. Ten original Charge 69 songs revisited and sung in English by a tasty selection of punk rock heroes; TV Smith (The Adverts), Matt Dangerfield (The Boys) Beki Bondage (Vice Squad), Colin (GBH), Greg (The Outcasts), Charlie Harper (UK Subs), Micky Fitz (The Business), Campino (Die Toten Hosen) Roger Miret (Agnostic Front) and Arturo Bassick (The Lurkers)
Each track is a punch in the face that floors the listener, these are killer blows from a pounding and pummelling rhythm section, and for anyone left standing razor sharp guitar riffs slash you in two. The guest vocalists inject their own passion into Charge 69's already potent punk rock mix.
Powerful, polished and well produced stuff, catchy and tuneful, a frantic action packed adrenalin soaked street punk riot that is indeed much more than music. No self respecting Punk'n'Roller should be without a copy of this album. Available soon from the good people at Time And Matter Recordings.
