SUBTITLES: I Am An Animal: Download


SUBTITLES are a two-piece garage punk band from Leicester, England and consist of Jonney Buck on vocals and guitar, and Chris Smith on drums.

First song on this EP is “I Am An Animal” and it just kicks ass! The vocals sound like a mixture of Joe Strummer and Lux Interior with drummer Smith doing a great job on his kit and Buck playing a mix of psychobilly and punk on guitar. Their cover of “Can Your Pussy Do The Dog?” is outstanding and rivals the CRAMPS version for wild abandon and crazed fun. “Something Else” is every bit the beautiful mess that SID VICIOUS made it into, “Little Red Riding Hoodis another great cover originally done by SAM THE SHAM & THE PHARAOHS has the sound of the 1960s garage bands doing a cover, but mixed with a crazy guy on vocals, “How Deep Is The Sky?” has more frenetic playing and has a fantastic groove. SUBTITLES play a lot of great covers on this EP and unlike many other artists, they really hold their own and prove that it’s possible to play cover songs and still make them unique and your own. “Tear It Up” was one of the best songs on the EP with its non-stop beat, it’s one of those songs that just reaches out and pulls you in.

SUBTITLES really take the energy and excitement of the late 1970s and early 1980s punk music, mix it with psychobilly, add garage punk and whip it into a delicious concoction that you want to keep drinking from.
