Beachpigs & Guests
The Beach Pigs - I might invent a genre and put these guys in it - lets call it polite punk. Not polite in stuffy way but polite in the sense that it’s not spraying piss and vinegar all over the front row. There is a bite to this music, but it’s more of a personal vendetta than frustration with “the system”. And there is a certain warmth to this music which endears it more than vitriol can. If you like music that’s energetic and fun but has some depth behind it and doesn’t out stay its welcome then I suggest you give this a listen. - Under The Radar
