By Revenge of The Psychotronic Man
If you have not seen Manchester's Revenge Of The Psychotronic Man before, you are in for a great show. Human pyramids, human wheelbarrows and human toberlorones. 'Shattered Dreams Parkway' will never show you these extraordinary live happenings, but it will open your ears to ROTPMs fast paced, don't give a fuck punk.
You'll be hard pushed to find a song on this album that breaks a 2 minute mark. Two of them do not even reach a minute, and sprint over the finish line like a punk rock Mo Farah. The energy and musicianship of this trio can still be fully heard (be lucky your ears can't blink as they would miss it). Coming from an underground scene too (band members are part of TNS Records, a truly grassroots punk label) this band have everything you want in hardcore thrash punk, the speed, live shows beyond everything else and brilliant lyrics and song titles. If 'Ready, Steady Bastard', 'Look At Me, I'm A Fucking Tiger' and 'Surfing Past The Stoat' don't grab you attention then you should miss out. More than highly recommended.
