Da Groins - The General Pub(l)ic


  Now here's a song that went down a storm when I played it on last week's Just Some Punk Songs show. It's by a new trio called Da Groins ( who claim to play "sloppy garage shit" on cheap and broken instruments. Their line up is Jim Groin (guitar/vocals), Matt Groin (drums) & Zero Groin (bass/vocals). 

  I'm assuming all three members are genre veterans and I feel I should know all their identities but the only obvious one is the ubiquitous James Domestic who's vocals seem to grace a different project every other week (for example this year so far he's turned up in Botched Toe & Tokyo Lungs and is preparing to release his debut solo album Carrion Repeating).


  The Da Groins debut ep is titled 100% Groin and it boasts 4 invigorating tracks of budget garage punk fun that the press release says is for fans of bands such as The Hives, The White Stripes, Thee Headcoats, The Mummies & Armitage Shanks. It's scrappy but catchy as hell. It's out on 7" vinyl as a joint release involving Kibou Records (UK), Amok Records (Germany), No Front Teeth Records (UK) and Serial Bowl Records (UK). You can check it out here :

  This is the lead track, it reminds me somewhat of City Hobgoblins era fall with it's cool as fuck manic garage guitar stylings. It's called The General Pub(l)ic...
