SICK OF SOCIETY - SPORTSMAN SOUND
Now what could the prolific German punkers mean this time around? The 'porn' theme is still there (complete with an album dedication to all 'Sportswoman'), so is the overall goofiness with an added soccer theme this time. But still, these guys are rocking out for a good time and even if titles like Cockrock Baby, Nights, Zero Days & little Surprise and fourth World ritual are a little cryptic; there is no doubt that the band is a fun punk band. Never to be monotonous, SOS do mix up the customary dose of metal, Scorpions-style balladry (Ahem) and Kyuss (Deadlife) to provide some variety, but No It, Jesus, God & I and others still hold the band as a not totally serious punk band a la Richies et all waiting to finally be discovered. As prolific as Agathocles (almost!), my only disappointment with the new CD is the use of drum machines on all tracks despite the presence of a live drummer. music is about feeling, passion and statement my friends, and a drum machine has no correlation to them. Write the band right after the hidden track comes to pass. Romerstr. 26, 89269 Vohringen Germany.
