Hog Hoggidy Hog - Oink!

2006-03-29 20:27

Punk rockers with a ska flavour, the Hogs have been going since 1995. They've played with some of the best punk rock bands in the country as well as with international touring bands such as de Heideroosjes (Epitaph) from Holland, and Frenzal Rhomb (Fat Wreckchords) from Australia.

Oink is an impressive mix of styles such as punk and ska, and a fresh brass section that might remind you of Madness. From their opening Psycho Reptiles-like intro to their carefully thought out cover of Johnny Clegg's "Great Heart", Hog Hoggidy Hog convincingly show their roots.

Of the 13 tracks on the album, only one or two are duds. Most are brilliantly mastered and produced with 'Cold Fusion', 'No One Heard' and 'Loop Street Generation' definitely worth a mention.

This is one of those CDs that grows on the you, and you may even find yourself looking for fellow fans to join you in the mosh pit.

Hog Hoggidy Hog fans will not be disappointed.
