BOMBS FOR BREAKFAST – ‘Fire And Fury’ EP Review


Bombs For BreakfastNew Midlands, UK based three-piece punk rock band Bombs for Breakfast recently released their debut EP, Fire and Fury. The four-track EP opens with a raw and ready guitar riff that builds into a powerful, chunky wall of sound with a pummeling bass and pounding drum and Victory Gin has hooks and melodies to spare. This is one powerful effort with a signature guitar lick, excellent vocals and we were hooked!

On Conspicuous Consumption Bombs For Breakfast unleash another melodic hook laden effort and this one has elements of the early days of The Jam as well as Stiff Little Fingers as it moves along at pace with great guitar work and group vocal interplay.

Third up is In The Mourning and it clocks in at almost four-minutes beginning with vocals and guitars and growing into rhythmic serrated chords. The length of the track allows the band to display some tight and accomplished musicianship – these folks are good. The EP concludes with The Old Man Who Eats Grass and this one is almost five minutes long starting with a Kinks like rhythm as the band channel The Police, Muse and the UK Subs to produce a brilliant protest song with storytelling chops to spare. This is what it’s all about!!!

The band are gigging around the Midlands and are starting to branch further out too to get the name out there – go see them and support them!
