Ecco qua il disco che aspettavo con ansia, ansia e ancora ansia per darmi una bella boccata di ossigeno.
Registrazioni non proprio pulitissime ma che sicuramente misero la band
in buona luce entrando così nelle categoria “band da tenere sott’occhio”. Così prima dell’estate, è uscito finalmente il nuovo album Nuclear Strikezone.
Riverdales e dei Dickies? Siete infoiati con i Simpson (facile riconoscere i riferimenti) e il baseball? Questo è pane per i vostri denti, c’è poco da fare.
I follow the Isotopes since a couple of years when I heard by chance a few tracks on bandcamp. Not so well recorded, but that definitely put the band in a good light under the category “band to follow with high interest” So before the last summer, the new album Nuclear Strikezone is finally out.
What to say? AWESOME! Do you love the Ramones? Are you fan of Riverdales and Dickies? Are you a Simpson-addicted (easy to recognize references) and a baseball fan? This band is definitely for you!
Put on vinyl, grab a beer and sit on the couch .. you will not even have time to start looking at the lyrics sheet that you will get a baseball bat in the face with Never been caught. And will be the same for all the tracks like Total juice head, Chicks dig the longball, Bleacher Creatures Girl, The ballad of Rey Ordoñez etc. interrupted just by Night bus home to you to break up the pace and get us a bit ‘of breath.
In a lot of bands in the midwest-beardcore that totally leave indifferent these guys from Vancouver (I also promote tourism, great city to visit) I was excited about how, giving me literally lifeblood.
I have never seen a baseball game, I never followed and I’ll never understand this sport but these guys have succeeded in to make me curious about at least.
You definitely need to pick up a copy of Nuclear Strikezone and I’m pretty sure they will be in my personal podium at the end of 2015.
Striped still has a few copies, in case you can contact the band, or their label Stomp Records who took care of the record. Isotopes Go, Go!
