Cerebral Ballzy - Cerebral Ballzy (2011)

Three reasons to love this band;

1. Their name / song titles. Cerebral Ballzy is probably the most amusing band name since Test Icicles. Song titles include 'Drug Myself Dumb', 'Skate All Day' and 'Underage Drink Forever' so you know exactly what you're getting from the outset.

2. Their vĂ­deos. A quick search on YouTube found several official videos for tracks on this, their debut album. Lots of skateboarding, casual recreational drug use and wanton destruction of property.

3. Their sound. Pitched somewhere back in the early 80's US hardcore / punk scene - Minor Threat, Suicidal Tendencies, Black Flag etc. Frenetic songs, strained vocals and not much lasting over 2 minutes. The whole album clocks in at only 20 minutes for 12 songs so there's no excuse not to play this over and over.

What more do you need to know - go get it, 'nuff said.
