FALLOUT - The Turning Point (Longshot Music)

The Fallout, one of Canada’s finest punk bands turning out a gem. Amongst jewels hailing from Canada, Fallout roll shoulders with the best Canada can offer. This work was produced as a break from working on full-length albums by themselves. All covers, from some of the Fallouts favourite Toronto punk bands and this have worked well. Maybe other bands should take a break and cover other bands material, perhaps just to break to the rut. This is a chance to catch up with older punk songs from Canadian punk bands that are too good to forget and are also hard to find. 7 tracks of pure punk, the Fallout Way. Top tracks for me ore National Security (The Young Lions) and Back Door To Hell (The Viletones). But it’s still hard to choose a number 1 amongst other tracks. All tracks are urgently short, but with a real experienced sound. Don’t pass on the Fallout cd; it is a classic amongst covers.

FALLOUT - WHAT IS PAST IS PROLOGUE (LongshotLONGSHOT MUSIC)

website

Toronto, Canada three piece The Fallout release their fourth full length collection, ‘What Is…’ Vocalist/guitarist Lord Byron powers things along with a mixture of driving fretwork and choppy riffs, that offers an appreciative nod to the melodic attraction of early punk on ‘Bigots And Bastards’ and a harder straight ahead core style on ‘Raise The Minimum Wage’. They’re also versatile enough to successful produce an effective slice of raw edged punk-reggae on ‘Nancy Never Knew’. Admittedly the abrasive, gravely, slightly off key vocal tones of front man Byron take a little getting used to, but perseverance builds an appreciation of his passionate approach. Throughout the display a knack for writing topical protest songs that take a slightly different angle like ‘Trail Of Tears’, ‘Pie In The Sky’ and ‘Robin Hood’ that all adds to the collective appeal of a band offering a healthy and resilient take on contemporary punk.
