Melbourne garage-punks’ de­but sounds like a home tat­too feels.

Thirty years ago, Amyl And The Sniffers’ en­thu­si­as­tic de­pic­tion of Aus­tralian lar­rikin life would have been con­signed to toi­let venues. In 2018, how­ever, these mul­let­heads sing about blowjobs and biffs to sta­dia full of Foo Fighters fans. Good work. Mu­si­cally, they re­sem­ble The Cramps mat­ing with a drunken dingo, and are blessed with singer Amy Tay­lor, whose post-riot gr­rrl Nancy Si­na­tra stance em­bold­ens 80- sec­ond blasts such as Stole My Push­bike and I’m Not A Loser (“My room­mates think I’m a c**t/But I pay my rent on time ev­ery month”). Their de­but is all about the first buzz, but Tay­lor’s star power could take Amyl And The Sniffers higher. Lis­ten To: I’m Not A Loser | Bal­a­clava Lover Boo­gie
