X ONE WAY X / YOUTH OF STRENGTH

SPLIT ALBUM

BOSS TUNEAGE

Its still not certain if the world needs another comedy straight edge hardcore band, but retrograde hardcore label Boss Tuneage are our eager hosts. Despite falling short of the Tenacious D’s sophistication, Vegan well-wishers make for great patsies and so exact are the jabs it makes you wonder if these thirty-somethings are perhaps targeting a scene they were once part of. Preaching the importance of deodorising, eating cornflakes and abstinence, the songs are populated with the same giggle-some, brain-dead lyrics rife in the halcyon days of 80’s DC. However, true to the genre, most of the words are largely unintelligible which means so are the gags. But the band are so musically proficient its easy to ignore the comedy and enjoy the great Hardcore.

6/10
