EP Review by Mark Bayross
Melbourne five piece 28 Days have been winning over our antipodean cousins since their birth in 1998, so much so that their debut album UPSTYLEDOWN entered the Aussie charts at Number One.
After support slots for the likes of Snuff, Less Than Jake and Agnostic Front, and appearances at the Big Day Out and The Warped Tour, 28 Days have begun headlining their own shows down under.
This four-track EP marks their debut release in the UK and has already found its way into a number of radio playlists. Fusing hip-hop and hardcore punk may not be anything new, bit it sure sounds good when delivered with this amount of energy.
Jay Dunne hollers his heart out over a wall of funked-up noise of which Rage Against The Machine would undoubtedly approve, while the likes of SUCKER and LA TUNE are as infectiously catchy as this cold that’s going round at the moment.
Their name may be a mystery (maybe they’re fans of February – me, I like August best…), but their music is immediately accessible.
