A non-Metal Music Review: Happy Ol’McWeasel

CD: No Offence

Available: NOW

                I was recently contacted by Caravan Music Promotions asking me if I would be interested in reviewing a couple of artists for them.  One was, well I’m not sure what it was but it was definitely not for me.  The other was a Celtic punk band from Slovenia who are supposed to be similar to the Dropkick Murphys  and Flogging Molly, while also having a old world music charm and feel to their music.

So even though not metal, I told Caravan I would look into the Happy Ol’McWeasel…which for a first time…is not a nickname I have given my dick.  So did ‘No Offence’ make my Little McWeasel happy?  It sure did! Continue reading A non-Metal Music Review: Happy Ol’McWeasel CD: No Offence

SUCKS! The Stupid EP cover art


Well, what can one say when you receive an email from some guys in Jersey asking you to review their ep with the words “Sucks” and “Stupid” in the title?  You say fuck yes you’ll review it because if you’re lazy, like I am, the review has a good chance of already being written for you with a title like that.  Unfortunately, for a lazy bastard like me, it doesn’t quite suck…though there is a good dose of stupid, but in a fun way.

The opening audio track of a caller calling in to a DJ with the name “Harry Johnson” complaining about the crap band Zamboni really sets the tone for the 3 song ep.  To me it’s obvious the guys here like to have fun and really when it comes to music that’s what it’s about.

From what information I was given of the band, they are a thrash/crossover band.  Crossover to what…seems to me maybe into the punk realm a bit…due to the style of the vocals and production values.  The three songs on the album are World War Z, Slaughterhouse and a cover of D.R.I.’s ‘The Five Year Plan’.  The production value of the EP aside from the opening spoof track with the DJ and Caller are very indie sounding with questionable audio/production.  Which to me is forgivable since I am assuming we have a group of guys here getting started and it kind of goes with the punk sound/style they have.

Sucks! The Stupid EP is nice little diversion to listen to if you don’t mind the indie, do it yourself recording sound it has.  The one thing I will ding it on though is the vocals.  The singer I wished sounded a little more aggressive.  He kind of sounds almost like a New Wave Singer from the 80’s…but at least a punk band from the 80’s…but I would like to see him grow a little more into a more aggressive vocal style.  Don’t go Flock of Seagulls on us man.

Otherwise, I have to give props to the guys who seem to have fun at what they are doing and the Jerky Boy Humor they have and at least it’s good to know we have more than Snooki and The Situation coming out of Jersey these days.
