The thing I love about rock music is how fertile it is. You can take any influence or sub-genre from hard rock to classic rock, from alt to punk, and chuck it all together to create something great. Titus Andronicus are no exception. A punk band from New Jersey who have been around since 2005, they sound to me simultaneously like the illegitimate love child of John Cougar Mellencamp and Dinosaur Jnr. Or maybe like Springsteen after a month of heavy drinking and deciding, whilst in the grip of the worst hangover ever, that he just doesn’t give a damn anymore.
‘Troubleman Unlimited’ is from their latest album An Obelisk which came out in June this year. If you like this then you should definitely check out the full record. It’s really pretty superb.
