Album Of The Week: Chubby And The Gang – Speed Kills

Speed Kills 1

Our pick of the albums reviewed on these pages during the past seven days is Speed Kills, the debut album from Chubby And The Gang which got a recent re-release – here’s your chance to revisit the review and check out the album via Spotify:

“For a genre so simple (a guitar, three chords and the truth, to quote Harlan Howard), punk music has a lot of variations.”

“Green Day offered up ‘pop-punk’ as a title for their snotty efforts (pilfering from the Ramones whilst doing so), Oi! eventually gave way to ‘hardcore punk’ as practiced by Black Flag, and it’s best not to pull on the thread of conversation that is ‘post-punk’.”

“London’s Chubby And The Gang have gone back to the start, when punk in Britain evolved from what was dubbed ‘pub-rock’, as pioneered by Dr. John. On the re-released Speed Kills, they channel the early greats, with a Beano-style cover harking back to the scene’s bratty roots. Infused with youthful energy, it’s a candidate for debut album of the year.”
