I wanna be teenage!
Dazzling debut by 4 kids from Brighton with punk in their blood...
A-M-I are a truly inspirational young punk band from Brighton.
Extraordinarily, they've created a blisteringly prodigious punkrawk inspired debut album. The line-up consists of brothers Marlon (15) and Bram Payne (13), their best friend from primary school Marley Perez (15) and rock school friend Harry Stagg (12).
Marley is Charlie Harper's grandson, and Charlie himself helped to produce some of this stunning album.
Having supported U.K. Subs, 999, Louise Distras and many others, the band are now getting a bigger following, with support slots booked for Penetration, Vice Squad, 999, Menace, The Straps and of course the Subs at the 100 Club on 24 May 2014.
A-M-I are also booked for the Rebellion and Undercover festivals later in the year.
Their songs tackle a range of issues - including rampant consumerism (Stuff), bullying (Meathead / Billy No Mates), environmentalism (The Beach), treachery (Implode / The Worm), rebellion (R.A.T.S) and so called pop-music moguls (Svengali).
“…‘Stuff’, with its memorable backing vocals is a magnificent opener; 'Billy No Mates' and ‘Meathead’ are bone fide punk classics; the former boasting spiralling grinding guitar, gladdening your punksoul. Sharp lyrics, attitude and a sense of humour all add to this mix of punk perfection, which would grace any punk era; 1977 and now! Stimulating song structures - magnificent music – simply stunning!...”
The CD is available in 3 different colours; red, orange or green...
Packaging includes a snazzy die cut sleeve and a 4 page booklet...
