The Phosphorus Bombs - A Bruise


  Yesterday we had Human Bombs so today I'm following that up with The Phosphorus bombs as the second part of an explosive one-two of punk rock goodness. 

  Hailing from Sydney, The Phosphorus Bombs are a 5 piece featuring Beef (guitar/backing vocals), Cheggs (drums), Harwood (guitar/backing vocals), Kearnes (vocals) and Rod (bass/backing vocals). Their influences include Bad Religion, Strung Out, Pennywise, Descendents, Propagandhi, Good Riddance, Ignite, Danzig era Misfits etc...

  They've built up a reputation an an impressive skate punk outfit with a couple of well received eps Chain Of Command (2015) and Barricade (2016) plus last year's blistering debut album Cancers. As the band's name would suggest, the songs are incendiary blasts of fierce, energetic punk rock. Short, explosive and sure to get you moving.

  You can get more info here :

  At the end of this month they'll be releasing a new ep, it'll be titled Blank Slates and was recorded by Frenzal Rhomb's Jay Whalley at The Pet Food Factory. As a taster they've released a single and as with all previous releases you can snap it up name your price on Bandcamp :

  One of the songs on the single is a rip roaring mash up of Bad Religion's I Want To Conquer The World and Modern Man. Below you'll find the title track, it's an unsolicited support of #metoo and it's called A Bruise....

This picture out of frame 
Step back dispute and mute, confusion sought without a name 
The guilt of never backing down 
Shoulders moulded to the sound 
Of voices, purple, black and blue 
Like a bruise 

And speak 
Louder still 
In borrowed space that time has yet to fill 

Yet this is what’s become 
When change recedes from what is needed 
Consolation to the numb 
So left exposed reclaim…the words by any other name 
Histories purple, black and blue 

Like a bruise 
And speak 
Louder still 
In borrowed space that time has yet to fill 
And seethe 
Honestly ’til 
You defend the space your lives are left to fill 

So bodies remember 
The time it takes for someone to believe 
The times you thought life’s better in defeat 
So bodies remember 

So bodies remember 
That lies support the barrier in-between 

Farewell to… 
The simpering remnants of shameful retreat 

So lead… 

So lead 
Bravely til you 
Defend your space with the lives you have rebuilt
