United Bottles - Working Class Victims
"Snakes in suits offer no solution
They've been playing both sides
Making working class victims
With their conflict legacy and mind pollution"
Rising from the ashes of the sadly departed Belfast Oi legends Runnin' Riot, United Bottles are a melodic street punk band featuring Marty (vocals/guitar), Ralph (bass/vocals), Phil (guitar/vocals) and Eden (drums).
They've just released their debut album The Spirit And The Legacy and it's packed full of honest, working class anthems that to my ears is the type of record that will fly off the shelves over the pond in the USA. It's been 2 years in the making and the wait has been definitely well worth while. If you're a fan of the likes of Street Dogs or Gimp Fist you'll lap these guys up. You can find the album here : https://unitedbottles.bandcamp.com/
They've a few gigs arranged to promote the album (including an appearence at this year's Rebellion Festival) and you can find details here : https://www.unitedbottlesbelfast.com/
I'll play a different song from the album on Tuesday's Just Some Punk Songs show (https://www.facebook.com/events/1738702039492877/) but for today's update they recently released a video for the song Working Class Victims so that's what I'll post.....
