RUMPUNCH - RUMPUNCH
Easily one of the freshest, spiciest debut albums to come along in ages.
Sydney’s Rumpunch sound like a mutinous crew of pirates drunk on reggae ‘n’ ska being held captive by a band of gypsies determined to sober them up with strong shots of rhythm ‘n’ funk.
A lick of The Cat Empire here, a drop of Fat Freddy’s Drop there, Rumpunch combine hot playing with cool melodies, filtering and distilling it all into a smoothly intoxicating and uniquely Australian blend.
Rumpunch are currently one of the best live bands around and they have captured all their energy and soul on this excellent debut that JJJ are playing.
