I always ask myself one question when I hear this band. Why don't more people know about them?? Basically they're a Dutch melodicore band along the lines of Pulley, who are on Epitaph Europe, and as a consequence theyre albums aren't available in America, so therefore you hear nothing of them .

Basically they're a Dutch melodicore band along the lines of Pulley, who are on Epitaph Europe, and as a consequence theyre albums aren't available in America, so therefore you hear nothing of them in the press (as it seems thats what goes on in the American music industry apperars to be the most important thing in the world!)

The album really exceeds all expectaions of a small band on a big label. The album starts off with 'Since '92' a sneering beast giving a big Fuck Off! to all the people who say they're not punk enough. Next we have such gems as 'Chatterbox', a song about a mine-clearer who has his limbs blown off while trying to clear land in a residential area.

The album is basically full of fast meaningful songs that blow your socks off, as the way in which the band can harmonise is fantastic! Every single member of the band sings on the record, and, in my opinion, they have one of the best guitar sounds in punk (after Hot Water Music). Everything about this band makes them stand out ie. the singers voice, as he's Dutch hes got a strange twang that, allbeit takes a bit of getting used to makes the harmonies sound crips and excellent.

The only place i'm aware of that you can get the album if you live outside Europe is amazon.co.uk In general, a punk album that everyone should own for its diversity and content!

Never mind the last link, it's bunk. Go to this one and just scroll down to undeclinable.

Just copy and paste. By the way, they're only known as Undeclinable now. Shiznit.

They had a song on the "Short Music for Short People" comp. but it dosen't do UA justice. Have you tried MP3.com yet? No idea but they have a pretty good stockpile of personal band pages.

Well as much fun as spending $40 to get a CD shipped over here to America sounds, I would like to hear the band first.
This seems impossible considering their CD's aren't sold over here, I have yet to see them on any comps, and I cannot find a single Mp3 of their music.

If you live in America and want it go to www.amazon.co.uk like the review says, they ship internationally and not too expensive too!

This is a review of an old cd.

The new album is even better. Check www.epitaph.com for more info.

You should be able to buy it via the internet in Europe,
check www.elcheapo.nl for the cheapest companies, if you combine
it with more purchases you can keep the costs low.
