Since I first found my way into the punk rock scene on the backs of bands like Screeching Weasel, The Queers, Vandals, etc… I have searched far and wide across the United States trying to find a band or two that tickled my fancy the way those bands did in my youth. Then that band came to me and wouldn't ya know it, that band wasn't from here in the states at all but rather Budapest, Hungary. First things first; THANK YOU!!!! Finding a good, solid, pop driven punk rock band that captures the original spunk and energy of the scene is hard to come by these days, but Bankrupt does just that on their latest effort "Rocket To Riot City." With the interesting, though very humours sound byte about ***ing Elvis tossing you into the album, I was instantly hooked as the guitar riffs slung me into the album followed by drums that seemed to leap out of my speakers and pound right into my chest. Vocally, this is everything I have been wanting. The in your face vocals, spit out at a quick pace, tend to deliver the lyrics via a Joe Queer style circa "Move Back Home" era Queers. The best part about "Rocket To Riot City," is that the opening track, "Straight Outta Graceland," is just the beginning of things to come because this album never slows things down. This is straight up, punk rock for roughly 11 straight minutes that laves you wanting more. If you, just like me have been looking for a band to love that takes you back to the days of when punk rock was punk rock, then Bankrupt is your band and "Rocket To Riot City" is the album you need to have.
