Drips by The Drips

It might be tempting to call The Drips a supergroup, but given that they are comprised of members from the less than famous Bronx and the all but forgotten Distillers, their fanbase probably wouldn't fill the cleaning cupboard at the Camden Barfly. That's not to say this newly forged quintet are not good enough to earn their own followers because this debut release hits top gear within the first two seconds of opening track ‘Broken’ and, for the next 26 minutes it's wall to waIl hardcore in the fine tradition of such Californian punk forefathers as Black Flag and Dead Kennedys. Variation? Depth? Subtlety?Pah. when you're as full blooded as The Drips, that stuff is for pussies.
