Vintage Crop - Company Man
2018 was a great year for Australian punk music with plenty of awesome songs from that country featuring both on this blog and on the Just Some Punk Songs show. 2019 promises to be even better (hopefully new albums by Amyl And The Sniffers and The Chats will live up to the huge expectation but will only be 2 of many great releases). One of the first out of the gate (Jan 18th) will be a new ep from Geelong 4 piece Vintage Crop. It's going to be titled Company Man and you can check out details (and find their previous releases, including excellent debut album New Age) here : https://vintagecrop.bandcamp.com/ You can also order it on vinyl from Anti Fade Records and Drunken Sailor Records.
The line up of the band is Jack Cherry, Tyson Harper, Luke O'Brien and Tyler O'Brien. They've a few gigs lined up to promote the ep and you can get more info here : https://www.facebook.com/vintagecropband/
Below you'll find the title track, it's a short, acerbic look at climbing the corporate ladder ("they groomed me! they trained me!"). All in all a very promising start to 2019. This is Company Man...
