U.S. Bombs: Covert ActionCovert Action (2003)

The U.S. Bombs really won me over with their previous album. It updated many of the sounds of early British punk yet sidestepped many of the ruts that revivalists fall into. The band’s passion and genuine love of the genre took what should have been rather dated songs and made them seem fresh. This, combined with Duane Peters’ guttural yet snotty vocals, gave it just the right balance between modern relevance and traditional style. While “Covert Action” doesn’t channel the Sex Pistols as much as “Back At The Laundromat” does, it’s still admirably steeped in `77 era guitar riffs and song structures.
