The Rabble is a straight up punk rock band from New Zealand founded by three dudes who set out to prove their country has more to offer than beautiful scenery. Brothers Chazz, Rupe and their friend Jamie formed the band in 2001 and have since released an EP and two full-length albums. Unlike a lot of bands today, you won’t find filler songs on a single Rabble release. Each song is irresistible and jam packed with energy and passion but the band’s talent is best showcased by the level of diversity in their sound. They have fury driven street punk songs, Celtic influenced tunes and soulful Punk Rock anthems that will grab your attention and leave you begging for more. I can honestly say that I haven’t felt this delighted about a band since I first heard the Bouncing Souls. It’s bands like this that remind me what got me into punk rock in the first place – good times and great tunes! If you aren’t familiar with this band yet do yourself a favor and visit their MySpace.
