Lame Shot! - Kings Of The Olympics
Lame Shot! are a French pop punk band from Toulouse who formed in 2012 and feature Julien Granel (drums), Mathieu Zuzek (vocals/guitar), Manu Panier (bass/keyboards/backing vocals) and Romain Boule (guitar/ backing vocals). Panier and Boule are also members of Charly Fiasco.
They released their debut album, Nice Try!, way back in 2012 (name your price : https://lameshot.bandcamp.com/album/nice-try) but they've now got round to the follow up. It's titled Try Again and you can get it from Monster Zero (Guerilla Asso, France & Lost Dog Records, Italy).
Billed as being for fans of the likes of Nerf Herder, Masked Intruder, The Copyrights etc, I always approach this kind of pop punk with a certain amount of trepidation as it's a genre that's very easy to do badly. No problems on that score with Lame Shot! though, they're catchy & fun without being too sickly sweet. Give them a go.
This is Kings Of The Olympics....
