"Take Back The Streets"

Fueling an old school Suicide Machines feel with a crackrocksteady approach (minus the overbearing Satanism), FT is heavy on the hyper-tempo ska upstrokes and rambled vocals. These vocals, however, are sub par at best. Often out of tune and off key, they could definitely use some smoothing out, but how to do it without overusing studio wizardry is going to call for a smart producing / mixing job on the next release. The backup screaming growls balance the overall vocal front well though, and to give them credit, this is only a demo EP, and it's chock full of catchy goodness.

"There Will Never Be Peace" should have you singing along by the second listen, even if its ideas are explained a little vague, especially at one point where the band picks out seemingly random events to elaborate on the title. The song "Apnea" definitely mixes a more emotional side of the band while still keeping the tempo intact and the political undertones shining through the surface, with its own hook line of "why did you have to go away on a day like today?"

While Take Back the Streets is nothing special, the window into the future it provides is. If Fox Trotsky smartens and organizes their ideas and smoothes out the sound, it's possible we have the next Suicide Machines on our hands (although likely without a power-pop / skate punk era). -

"Escape To Miller's Cave"

Almost a year in the making, “Escape to Miller’s Cave� is a split release from two of Atlanta’s finest. Embodying everything about punk rock (and quite a few things that aren’t), Fox Trotsky and Die Benny scorch through 5 songs each that display everything each band has to offer: honest, emotional and genuine punk rock. Each band has brought their A-Game for this release, with Fox Trotsky displaying a much more mature “Punk influenced Rock n Roll� sound as opposed to their older, more ska-derived releases. As for Die Benny, they have done simply what they do best: take everything punk rock, put it in a blender, and create an honest set of songs. - Cd
