this band is the truth.
i recently came across the AUSTRALIAN PUNK band THE CHATS online and was just immediately taken with their humor and cleverly arranged concise song construction which is in the tradition of not only PUNK ROCK (RAMONES) but also GARAGE ROCK (THE SONICS, THE STOOGES) and even CLASSIC ROCK (AC/DC). singer/bassist EAMON SANDWITH is an absolute revelation as he passionately sings about the mundane aspects of life down under and somehow elevates them to something altogether transformational.
its so easy to feel jaded about the state of ROCK N ROLL and then something like this jumps out at you randomly and gets you excited about music all over again.
definitely check out THE CHATS. i promise you they are worth your while.
