I’d put money on Bare Bones enjoying the occasional drink or 17. Hailing from Sydney, this is a five-piece ultimate party train, hammering at your door, brandishing several kegs of beer, wondering why the fuck has someone not put Motley Crue on the stereo yet. What hits you about Cut Throat Living is how abrasive and breathless these six songs are.
In some ways this band remind me of Raised Fist in the relentlessness of the vocals. But the guitar sounds are of a much more traditional punk nature, you can even hear some acoustic strings in ‘Ringer’, there isn’t the super-beefy down tuned metal distortion some bands resort to and I’m actually quite glad.
