The Australian hotbed of raucous guitar bands continues its inexorable churning grind of explosive talent. This time hailing from Melbourne, CLAMM issue their kick ass punk debut album to clamour above the throng.

Jack, Masie and Miles can certainly pound them out; driving rhythms, nihilistic monotone vocals, nail hard riffs, screeching feedback, stark lyrics – it’s all there. There are some real gems as well, Sucker Punch incessantly never lets you up after slowly bowling you well and truly over, and Keystone Pols blisteringly lambasts the cops and their blustered nonsense; the band definitely sees you. Laden with themes of mental health, materialism, anti-violence and modern angst, CLAMM deal with life with picks and sticks in tightly clenched fists.
