Freaks to the front


Australian punks Amyl and the Sniffers released this live video clip this week from a recent show... a good preview of what to expect when they play Terminal 5 on West 56th Street next Friday night... in support of their most recent release, Comfort to Me.

*You ain't no punk, you punk/ Wanna talk about the real junk? * (Cramps)

If this is the second coming of Punk Rock I'm all in (ok, 4th really). Putting aside the Wendy O. Williams/ Plasmatics (and Iggy Pop and Lux Interior and Joan Jett and blah, blah, blah) this little spark plug of a Girl and her degenerate Aussie band rock hard AF. Amy's kind of shouting her way thru the above mini-set but her energy level is off the charts. Her best screw-tube singing performance might be with the Sleaford Mods doing a very entertaining version of Nudge It. There are, of course, others. I'm Not A Loser comes to mind.......and with a very solid three albums in the fold this is a punk band is crushing everything in its path. Terminal 5 might be the worst venue in NYC for audio quality but a good sound engineer can work miracles in this dump. The Sniffers have my seal of approval. This is the real Junk.
