Catalog ref. : SOTS 135

 „The Saints come marching in!“ Das zweite Album der City Saints (feat. ex-Perkele/Chillihounds-Musiker) aus Göteborg, 12 erdig-rockende Tracks voller Herzblut und aufrechter Working Class Hooligan Attitude, mit englischen Texten (über den Alltag, den Underdog Way of Life, gegen „Money, Corruption and lies“) und oldfashioned 70’s Riffs. Rough’n’tough Hooligan-Ständchen für ein immerwährendes Freitagnacht-Gefühl. Die Bands selbst bezeichnet ihre Formel als „Classic Rock’n’roll and High energy Punk Rock“, verpackt die kernigen R’n’R-Basics ganz schmissig in ein hard’n’angry Bootboy-Update. Eine schweißtreibende Jam-Session von Rose Tattoo und Sham 69, Power Streetpunk’n’roll at it’s best.

Second album by Gothenburg’s CITY SAINTS (est. in 2012, feat. formerly Perkele/Chillihounds members) on Spirit of the streets Records. Announced by the Teaser 7″ “The last boys” (out in April 2014 on SoTS) it presents itself as a kind of Best of …, compiled out of a source of more than 50 (!) Demo recordings. Their first full length, „Kicking Ass for the Working Class!” was like a test rocket, „Blue collar sons” is the finished masterpiece: 12 dirty rockin’ tracks, full of heartfelt passion and honest Working Class Hooligan Attitude, with English lyrics and oldfashioned 70’s riffs. Drivin’, catchy and wonderful simple. No experiments here. Just the good old hard knockin’ Streetwise stuff. You know, drinkin’ and fighting, for an everlasting Friday Night feeling. The band itself describes their formula as “Classic rock and roll and high energy punk rock” , roarin’ R’n’R Basics packed quite snappy in a hard’n’angry Bootboy update. Imagine a sweaty jam session of Rose Tattoo and Sham 69, Power Streetpunk’n’roll at it’s best. Catchy and gritty as hell, dammit!!
