Album Review: The Bronx - IVMonday 11th February, 2013 2:40PM
These ‘purveyors of audio and visual dissidence’ from California are a really monstrous live band and have previously made three excellent rock-punk-hardcore albums; each one stretching out the idiom of punk-fucking-rock a little further than the last in terms of production and songwriting. This fourth album is another progression on the older material, and is invigorated by half a decade spent traversing the world as an entertaining, fully-fledged mariachi band – releasing two albums as Mariachi El Bronx, which are equally worth your time on Earth. Actual ‘Bronx’ live shows were few and far between during this period: happening on a party boat in New York City, or perhaps in a large mid-west US arena playing warm-up for the Foo Fighters. You gotta pay the bills, and have some fun, right?
