Some more singles

Filed under: Single Reviews — by Free Edinburgh Podcast @ 1:31 pm

Guns on the Roof – On the Brink

They claim to sound like when The Sex Pistols met Rancid, perhaps making much of such esteemed punk credentials. But what’s on offer here has too much pop essence and focus on melody to be considered truly punk rock. It’s no less great for that though, and this is a solid, catchy pop punk romp.

7.5/10

Giant Jr. vs Eartha Kitt – I Want to be Evil

The real star of this single is of course Eartha Kitt’s controlled, classy croon but Giant Jr. have performed a technological assault on the upbeat jazz original that only injects more venom into Kitt’s spite and spit. Ignore the tedious remixes though.

8.4/10
