JACKSON REID BRIGGS & THE HEATERS – Spit On It And Give It A Name

JACKSON REID BRIGGS & THE HEATERS – Spit On It And Give It A Name

Jackson ReidMelbourne, Australia’s Jackson Reid Briggs & The Heaters have announced the release of their second full-length album on Vinyl Spit On It & Give It A Name.

Following the March 2017 release of their debut record, https://punkonline.co.uk/jackson-reid-briggs-the-heaters-when-are-you-going-to-give-up-on-me-so-i-can-give-up-on-myself-album-review/, the band headed back into their rehearsal space to smack together another. With the intention of creating a rawer album that more closely embodied the band’s live performance (without overdubs, editing, etc.) the band recorded the instrumentation in a single day.

Spit On It & Give It A Name received a digital release via the group’s Bandcamp on the 5th October 2017(to coincide with the beginning of a five week tour through Europe) and a vinyl release via Grubby Publications on May 13 2018.

The aggressive, dirty garage punk of Drop Off opens the eleven-track album with a roar and is followed by a chunky, churning belter of a song, Seaside with a raw, sound channeling fellow Melbourne rockers The Birthday Party. Nothing Matters is driven by a guitar lick over pounding rhythm and shouted vocals that add to the rhythm whilst Rotting is a sub-two minute chaotic romp with the title repeated over a raw soundtrack!

Know Your Getting Better is a bluesy rocker with a foot stamping beat and vocals dripping with sarcasm and irony and the eighty seconds of Automatic Man show that these folks can rock merging Motorhead with the Jesus & Mary Chain! On Bending Bones, Jackson Reid Briggs & The Heaters belt out a rollicking punk rocker of a track with power and a Gallows like vibe.

The DIY rawness of Didn’t Try reminds me a little of The Fall with signature vocals, some off-kilter guitar and the sixty-eight seconds of bass driven blues/rock of You Know are heavenly! The second to last song, On A Boat opens with some ominous guitar riffs, echo-infused vocals reminding me of The Animals pushed through a distortion pedal and the closer, Caroline Springs is more like The Cramps meeting The Fall on a dark night and producing a sound from the gates of hell!!

Great dirty rock and roll that just explodes!!!! Try out Spit On It And Give It A Name by Jackson Reid Briggs & The Heaters here:https://jacksonreidbriggs.bandcamp.com/album/spit-on-it-give-it-a-name
