When it comes to delivering adrenaline fuelled teenage daydream party tunes then it doesn't get much better than homegrown ragga-rap renegades and punk-infused popsters Tweak.

On their latest journey into the chaotic realm of tongue in cheek young love, adolescent rebellion, party pranks and radio-ready road movie folklore, the nation's soon-to-be pop pinups pack one helluva playful pop-meets-punk punch.


Snotty singalongs such as "Sunny Days" and the three-chord festivities of "My Favourite Girl" and "I Hate Myself" unashamedly pander to misunderstood suburban kids everywhere. Playful lyrics like the best bit from the four to the floor frenzy of "Obsessive Compulsive" - 'I stole your panties/They smelled so sweetly/I'm sorry if I freaked you out' - perfectly capture the precarious teenage dirtbag delights of puppy love.

And the infectious hooks and "Beastie Boy" style rap revelries of "Houseparty" and "Hell No" (featuring turntable guru Ready D) are destined to spawn a smile on the faces of even the most cynical of listeners. If not, then the multimedia interactive video and short movies of the "band on the run" available on the enhanced CD certainly will.


Forget the self-styled Sk8er posturing of punk poppets like Avril Lavigne or Billboard misfits such as Wheatus.

MWHA HA HA HA HA They both suck. I'd recomeend any other south african artist who's not trying to be Blink 182, Sum 41 or any other ska punk rock band. i'm sorry, but they just missing that "sound". Hell, even Danny K is better *twitch*. Heinze Winkler? No. Just that our ska punk rock bands are not up for it. Mean Mr Mustard is good. good songs, and good sound. yeah. I'd recommend them.

Exellent CD I baught the CD cause I'm regular fan of Tweak. When I listened to it I found it's even better than the first one. Great tunes mixed with hip genre's like rock, punk, rap and even reggae! It's an excellent CD so go out and buy one... or three! Tweak: Dirty Sanchez and the misfit kidz

It's ok This took a while to grow on me, but I still think the first one was much better. They don't at all sound like Blink or Sum 41 though. If Tweak would return to the sound of "The Romantic Lure..." I'd be a happy chappy...
