SYDNEY DUCKS "Esprit de Corps" 7"
"Esprit de Corps"
Street Date: 11.15.11
The SYDNEY DUCKS are a band with exceedingly solid songs and lyrics that creates their own distinct sound. Featuring ex-members of AIRFIX KITS, ACEPHALIX, EMERGENCY, OUR TURN, and SUBWAY THUGS, they clearly come from a wide variety of punk and hardcore backgrounds - and it shows. As does their cohesiveness! Their notoriety in San Francisco came quickly; selling out the common bar shows local bands get introduced through - and they've more recently established themselves supporting popular bands like THOSE UNKNOWN, YOUND OFFENDERS, and OLD FIRM CASUALS - and their plans for the future take that even further. Their debut 7" is nearly out of print, scooped up by local fans and internet collectors alike, and this followup to it is sure to be a hit as well!!
Perhaps it's best to use the word of a reviewer to further illustrate and legitimize the effect that this band is having, both locally here in SF, as well as around the world (thanks to the Internet, so far!).
“There’s been a new wave rising over the last few years keeping punk legitimate in an era threatened by being mired in nostalgia and mediocrity. With such disparate bands like YOUNG OFFENDERS and CRIMINAL DAMAGE and now the SYDNEY DUCKS, this new generation (made largely of people from older generations) manages to create a fresh, new blue-collar punk sound while staying purely traditional at the same time. SYDNEY DUCKS achieve this by doing away with the repetitiveness common to Oi! and replacing it with dashes of influences ranging from mid tempo hardcore to a bit of first generation post punk. The resultant sound is like the TEMPLARS crossed with IGNITION..." –Maximum RocknRoll
