Hard Wax - Bootboy Stomp (All Night Long)



  One of the most eagerly awaited albums of 2017 is the debut from UK bovver punks Hard Wax. The band features Tom Boutwood (also a member of both Arch Rivals and Hostile Minds) and Matt Couch (Hostile Minds).

  They first appeared on here last year with debut single Kings Of The Weekend which I described as a mid paced modern oi classic featuring an anthemic chorus (http://justsomepunksongs.blogspot.co.uk/2016/07/hard-wax-kings-of-weekend.html). If the teaser first track from new album Diamond In The Rough is anything to go by, the single definitely won't be a one off as far as classic oi goes. It'll be available soon on Rebellion Music-Merch (https://www.rebellionshop.com/hard-wax-diamond-in-the-rough-lp-lim-500-3-clrs-pre-order-01-april.html) and Contra Records.

  Not content to rest on their laurels, they've already been back in the studio recording a couple of new songs for another release later this year.


  As you'll see below, they've recently released a video that highlights their modern take on good old fashioned glam/rock n roll. This is Bootboy Stomp (All Night Long).....


The day is long and you’ve been working hard
But the thoughts racing through your mind are what’s going on tonight
Shave you head and shine your boots
Dressing smart will make you feel brand new,
Looks like it’s going down tonight

So put your boots on 
And start stomping to the same old song
Watch the DJ spin 45s
I know that I can dance all night

Work all week, just trying to make it through
But now Fridays here put your troubles behind you
Pull on your jeans and grab a drink
For two days we don’t have to think
Looks like it’s going down tonight

So put your boots on 
And start stomping to the same old song
Watch the DJ spin 45s
I know that I can dance all night

The night feels young but it’s getting light
Time for one last song, DJ get it right
Don’t want to stop but it’s almost over
It’s my last drink, don’t want to go home
It’s been a good night, my memory is blown
Won’t remember a single thing tomorrow

So put your boots on 
And start stomping to the same old song
Watch the DJ spin 45s
I know that I can dance all night
