Ironboss vs. Electric Frankenstein - split 7"
"Unconventional Love" takes off like a runaway train injected by The Adverts and Radio Birdman, not that original but what the fuck, Ironboss rocks! Electric Frankenstein, the world's most productive rockcombo since Billy Childish, kicks off the flipside with "Tear It Down", a straight forward rocker with more backing vocals than I'm used from the New Jersey cats. There's also a 60s feel to the song. The Circle Jerks' ol' "Wild In The Street" is a punkrock classic, and EF does a mighty fine job, Steve Miller's voice is perfect at this full-on mayhem. The monster lives. Nothing you really haven't heard before but a decent release from BBR.

Yeah man! Bootleg Booze Records serverar här en delikat split 7" med EF och Ironboss. Först ut att riva av är EF som bidrar med de 2 låtarna "Tear it down" och "Wild in the streets" varav sistnämda är en Jeffreys cover. De maler på i vanlig takt och skrålar järnet! Detta är två riktigt bra låtar men den andra är snäppet vassare! Sidbyte!
Ironboss, ett relativt nytt band för oss, trevlig överraskning, lirar på med diesel-indränkt punkrock som får mej att tänka liet på Turbonegro´s tidigare verk. Grymt Schysst split! Hoppas BBR fortsätter att nosa upp och släppa såhär goa band!

Yeah...they´re back and they f**ing rock. The last release I heard of Ironboss was their Live album on Underdogma and I was totally blasted by their music and now they´re back with a really mindblowin´ song called "Unconventional Love" and this is a straight Rocker...believe me...I would buy this 7" just because of this song, but this piece of vinyl has more for your ears, cause the two songs of Electric Frankenstein are rockin´ as good as the one song of Ironboss...with "Tear It Down" and "Wild In The Streets"...Electric Frankenstein celebrated their come back on my record player, cause the last release I heard of them was on Man´s Ruin and that´s long...long ago...and by the way EF rocks like never before and I had them more punky in my mind, but these are ROCK Hymns...who cares...I highly recommend this 7"!!!
