Spoilers have been around the UK scene for a couple of years now so this, their debut album, has been hotly anticipated by those in the know. The band features ex and current members of Southport, 7 Day Conspiracy and More Than Normal and the release is a four-way collaboration by Boss Tuneage, Brassneck Records, Little Rocket Records and SBAM Records. The guys play driving melodic punk rock that brings to mind bands like Leatherface, Snuff and Goober Patrol. The album is generally on the poppier end of the spectrum and liberally sprinkled with Hammond organ (provided by Lee ‘the Mod’ from Snuff). Tracks such as See You Ringside and Pushover switch gear and have more of a straight up punk leaning and it will be interesting to see if the band incorporate more of this sound moving forwards. This is an extremely solid release which will certainly tick all the boxes for fans of their aforementioned musical forefathers.
Spoilers are supporting the legendary Guns’n’Wankers on their upcoming UK reunion shows so, if you’re lucky enough to be able to get to one of those, make sure you get there in good time to check them out.
