PISTENBROKE
True Brewed Rock n’ Roll EP

By Shane Pinnegar

 

 

Like four bastard sons of the unholy coupling between Lemmy and a troupe of marauding biker wenches, Adelaide’s PISTENBROKE (Geddit??) raise a tattooed middle finger with this searing slab of solid metal.

 

Just like Motorhead, the vocals are gruff, the music is raw, the melodies are strong, the sense of humour is intact, the riffs are memorable and the subject matter is gritty.

 

‘Manwhore’ is about… well… you can guess!  ‘Rock Out With Your Cock Out’ is a favourite of mine that must surely incite riots live, while ‘Forever In Black’ is a runaway train of a track.

 

From the start to the end of this four tracker the Motorhead comparisons remain strong, but only as a benchmark – Pistenbroke ain’t no copycats!  There’s a Metallica-flavoured riff here, some punkishness there, and a hefty serve of Aussie pub rock throughout.  It’s rough and dirty and raw, and all the better for it!

 

True Brewed Rock n’ Roll – indeed!
