THE FINGER GUNS – ‘Sasquatch’ Album Review


The Finger GunsThe Finger Guns hail from Seattle and have announced that their Bigfoot and YETI EP’s have been re-mastered for vinyl (along with an additional new song) and the new album is pressed on beautiful antifreeze-green vinyl and limited to a run of 300.

Each album has been hand numbered by the band and a digital download is also included in each record. The opening track, All These Scars is a catchy rocker with elements of Nirvana and Husker Du mixed with The Clash! The superb Superstitious just oozes hooks and melody with a great vocal and ‘punch the air’ atmosphere.

On 4-3-2-1, The Finger Guns lay down a dirty guitar riff with a Ramones edge whilst Find A Way is a feel-good punk rock slab of power. One of the best tracks of the eleven is the bass driven Caution Meets Wind with melody and hooks creating a raucous rock and roller!

Town Crier lays down a dirty riff reminding me of Dinosaur Jr. whereas the following effort, …And The Stars is a bluesy beat driven song with accessible melody in the spirit of Gaslight Anthem. The garage rock of Overload is more Motorhead in style and approach and Seattle Traffic returns to the Ramones style albeit with a raunchy edge!

The second to last song, Circles And Squares has some 1960s melody underpinned by some dirty rock and roll guitars and the closer, Thunderbolt! Thunderbolt! Is a powerful pounding punk rocker replete with soaring solo. This one is on repeat here at punkonline.co.uk towers…you’ll love it!
