General Bastard – Revolution Rock

General-Bastard_Revolution Rock album art

Michigan’s General Bastard (a.k.a Dean Carls) released an 11-song album, Revolution Rock, chock full of old-school punk rock attitude.

This full-band effort was recorded at a professional sound studio in Michigan and sounds like it, with clear attack, good balance, and good definition between instruments.

Songs have that catchy, simplified structure – no complex parts or orchestration here – and feature hilarious songtitles like “Fuck Kim Kardashian” and “GDMSOB” (= God Damn Motherfuckin’ Son Of a Bitch).

S.O.D did it first, but this is a fantastic indie band to listen to when you want to hear ‘more punk, less thrash’.
