The Easy Lovers “Get A Job”

I haven’t heard from these guys from Oklahoma before, but here they are, introducing themselvers with 13 old-school punk rock’n’roll songs that smell like dirty streets and beer. You’ll find some angry ’77 tunes (“Kill That Girl”, “Away From Me”…), a bit of explosive trashy power pop (“Fall For You”, “Forbidden Zone”, “Runnin’ Out On Love”…) and lots of hooligan backing vocals in the choruses of these songs. Early CLASH (“Pills For Pills”, “Blacklist”…) and JOHNNY THUNDERS (the guitars!) come to mind when listening to this album, and songs like “I Don’t Wanna Know” and “Track Marks and a Broken Heart” seem to have been made to make you pogo ’77 style and sing a long until you drop! The EASY LOVERS also make me think of new Swedish band 16 TON ROCKERS since they seem to share the same influences and spirit. Ready, steady, go!/Laurent C.
