‘That Dog Won’t Hun’t’ is already this German band’s third album, but it serves as my introduction to them. Co-released by Monster Zero and Mon’s Basement Records, this album comes with twelve songs of the sugary pop-punk variety with plenty of 50s/60s influences. And not just because they included a cover of Skeeter Davis’ ‘End of the World’.

Think Travoltas, Parasites, Screeching Weasel, The Queers or other bands from the Lookout! Records era. And if you are too young to know what the hell I’m talking about, just think Masked Intruder. Buzzsaw guitars, catchy melodies and lyrics about getting your heart broken. That’s pretty much all you need to make a perfectly fine pop-punk album that isn’t exactly original… but still a helluva lot of fun.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
