Boom! Paris Street Rebels are from Fife in Scotland, which would usually qualify them for my Glasgow/Scottish Thursday track. But this is so good, so unbelievably good, I bumped it up to Monday. What better way to start the week than an all out, frenetic punk song?
From the Joker-esque video to the ultra fast power chords, this has everything. Just listen to those drums at the start. Take in the nice harmonies on the chorus. This is the epitome of the Scottish punk movement that’s happening, and has been happening for the past two or three years now. It still hasn’t had the recognition it deserves. And yes, I’m still banging the drum for it because very few others seem to be.
The band only has a handful of singles out so far, but on the evidence of this they are going to be massive. Get in now at the ground floor and prepare to be smug when everyone else is talking about them in a few months’ time.
