As a massive early Killed By Death style punk fanatic, constantly in pursuit of the ever elusive records and one-off-obscuro sound, I frequently turn up my nose at modern bands playing the style. You can’t just crap out a poorly recorded generic riff punk track, slap a “KBD” label on it and expect me to fall for the ruse. I mean bands have done that and had varying degrees of wool pull – see The Uncalled 4’s “Grind Her Up” 7″ for the best success of this – but it doesn’t usually work out. What I particularly enjoy about Rotary Club is that they rework the lyrics into all things landline telephone while heavily referencing the riffage from the genre’s top tier tunes, twisting them just enough to make them their own. A refreshing and well executed take to say the least.
