Amyl and The Sniffers - "Some Mutts (Can't Be Muzzled)"

What can be said about Amyl and The Sniffers besides the obvious? They're the best thing to happen to punk rock in years! The arrival of new music from this band is always an event worth celebrating internationally. It seems weird to say this, but "Some Mutts (Can't Be Muzzled)" is the debut single from Amyl and The Sniffers. And boy, is that title track ever a ripper! You might see that NWOBHM inspired cover art and wonder if that's an influence. I would say that's a definite yes! If you enjoy old style punk with a side of tough as hell rock n' roll, this is about as good as it gets! Here Amy rails against an ex who has "replaced" her. Let's just say that she's not taking it lightly! It's remarkable how far the band has come from its first EP in terms of chops and recording quality. Yet none of the edge has been lost. On the B-side is "Cup Of Destiny", a track the band released as a music video earlier this year. I absolutely love this song! It's one of the best Amyl and The Sniffers tracks to date, and I'm stoked that it's now available for purchase. I like that the band has printed the lyrics. That's some pretty deep stuff!

 "Some Mutts (Can't Be Muzzled)" b/w "Cup Of Destiny" is an instant classic punk 45. It's limited to 1,000 copies, and you know they're gonna be gone in a flash. Order now from Flightless Records in Australia and ATO Records in the USA!
