The Boils
When The Sun Goes Down (Creep Records)

By: Jeb Branin

I am really getting into the Philly area scene lately (thanks mostly to Creep records) and bands like THE BOILS are why. Pure punk rock fury that does nothing fancy yet does everything right. This high adrenalin kinda rawk is what attracted me to punk in the first place. It isn't quite Oi! but it is definitely street punk. The sound of the city and the beat of boots on pavement put to music. Sing-a-long worthy choruses, ferociously pounding drums and three chord guitar heroics are the bread and butter of THE BOILS sound. They aren't doing anything new but they sure are doing it better than most. Some of the songs on this MCD have been released before so this makes for a pretty short release for longtime fans but for new initiates like me I can't think of a better way to be introduced to THE BOILS. This is one blemish you ain't gonna wanna pop.
