Lower Class BratsRock 'N' Roll Street Noize (Turkey Baster)
Born of Austin's mid-Nineties punk renaissance, the Lower Class Brats remain true to quasi-East End roots. Like their British forbears, the Brats' approach to punk eschews semantics for bloody knuckles. "King of the Droogs" furthers the quartet's well-chronicled fascination with A Clockwork Orange, while "Thoughts About You" is a lager-drenched universal kiss-off for the ages. No new ground here, but the band's lack of pretension yields a force unto itself.
