Southport - Nothing Is Easy (Cover Artwork)
Staff Review


Nothing Is Easy (2000)

Go Kart

I don't know anymore. I mean, this sounds good and all, but to tell the truth, I can't remember one lyric or guitar riff or anything. But strangely enough, I enjoy it. Southport has a HUGE Leatherface influence, which is cool. Apparently, the singer of Southport used to sing with Snuff before they broke up, and decided not to rejoin Snuff when Fat Mike convinced them to reform. This guy has a pretty darn cool voice, so does that mean Snuff was once good? Who knows. But Southport definitely has potential. This CD contains 9 songs, and it's pretty short, so it technically might be an EP, I'm not quite sure. It does fly by, which might be the source of my not remembering any lyrics, guitar riffs, etc., but a bonus to it not sticking in my head is that the album sounds brand new and fresh with each listen. Kind of funny how that works. Anyways, if you dig that heavier English sound that still has melodies aplenty, give Southport a try.
