Guitar Gangsters - Built To Last


  You probably already know and love London punk band Guitar Gangsters (https://www.facebook.com/guitargangsterslondon). They've been around since 1988 and have released a healthy number of studio albums. When I played a new track by them on this week's Just Some Punk Songs show, one of the listeners in the chatroom (Atti) claimed to have bought all those albums and stated the band kept getting better and better. I'm pretty sure he'll be splashing out on their new one. 

  That new one is titled Fortune Favours The Brave and it's the sound of an experienced band demonstrating how to write melodic punk anthems. It's nothing we've not heard before but if this is the kind of music you love then you'll have to look hard to find anything better. I can't find a bandcamp link to share with you but you can check it out on Youtube : https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_mFf1zZGRO0GJihbaMdrfPBhAOGS3uJONU

  If, like Atti, you want to buy the album, it's available on vinyl (green or black) and cd from Breakout Promotions : https://breakoutpromotions.bigcartel.com/

  I'm a bit spoilt today as there's so many great tracks on the album but I played the title track on the show so I'm going to highlight a song that manages to bring to mind both early 80's era Stiff Little Fingers and There She Goes by The Las (or it does in my mind at least!). This is Built To Last...
