THE BLACK HALOS – “UNCOMMONWEALTH”
Although there have been a plethora of punk revivalists over the years, Vancouver’s the Black Haloslook to a slightly different golden age than that of the Clash and the Buzzcocks; they’re more enamored of the glammed-up trash-rock of the New York Dolls, the sonic scuzz of the Stooges, and the snotty nihilism of the Dead Boys. The Vancouver/Toronto punk rock trouble makers are back and ready to tear it up!
“What can you do when life gives you lemons you ask ? Well squirt the juice in its eyes I reply, and that’s exactly what we’re doing with this new 3 song EP! Just take the lyrics “It’s the punchline line of the century that Brian Jones sunk like a stone ” from the song Fossil Fuel and the line “So this is what it looks like under the bus!” from the title track Uncommon Wealth. We’re not talking ballads here kids. Finishing it off we got a cover of the song Shoot You Down by the British gem of the delete bin band, Birdland, that we fell in love with and used to jam in the early years. We Hope these three offerings will keep you burning until the upcoming, soon to be announced, full length…” ~Billy Hopeless
