From the band name and album title to the cartoonish artwork and funny song titles (“Defamation By Defecation”, “Everyday’s A Holiday On Christmas Island”) and the fact that they are from Australia, a link with Frenzal Rhomb was made in my head before I had even heard a single tune…. Alcohol-loving punks with a sense of humour and songs about loving alcohol with some social commentary mixed in.

Turns out I was right on the money but as Local Resident Failure prove, that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. After relentless touring and numerous EP, they churned out this full-length which comes with no less than 15 songs and if you like fast 90s punkrock like NOFX and Lagwagon, there’s no going wrong with “A Breath Of Stale Air”.
