Buzzbomb - ‘Sixty Miles Of Bad Road’

Words by Charles Patterson 
Buzzbomb is the perfect name for this Scottish trio, with each song on this latest offering Sixty Miles of Bad Road (the third album in ten years) being a short, sharp burst of energetic punk; a throwback to a sound that has somewhat faded in the pubs and clubs across the UK in recent years. Despite this, Buzzbomb have toured relentlessly since their last release in 2012.

What is really impressive is this album manages to provide variety within itself. Born To Lose, and Blood and Whiskey are anthemic sing-alongs, but it’s Bare Knuckle Truth where the band really surpasses itself; a clash of guitars, drums and gravelly vocals that just works so well. 

This is an album that was meant to be played live. Every track crackles with an electricity and the buzz of a band that could play to an empty room and still create an atmosphere. With album artwork by Patrick Goddard (of 2000AD and Judge Dredd fame), the guys have friends in high places and it wouldn't be surprising to see them rise in people's opinions following their upcoming tour.

Quoted by famed Glasgow venue King Tuts Wah Wah Hut as being “one of the best live acts in Scotland”, you should travel however you can to watch Buzzbomb live. Whether it's good road, bad road, or no road, it's well worth sixty miles.
