Amyl and the Sniffers

Punk rock has always been a great way to spill your guts. You don’t need to sing or play your instruments; you just need anger, attitude and spleen. Amyl and The Sniffers is an Aussie punk band that has plenty of all three. And critics have noticed. Their debut won the Best Rock Album and a growing following around the world. The lead singer – with her platinum mop, chipped front tooth and tomboy moves – looks like a cross between Suzi Quatro and Blondie and spits out bleak social commentary like Johnny Rotten. The other three members sport serious mullets and crank out fast, heavy rhythms with just enough melody to hook the listener. Punk is making a comeback. Politicians beware. For the rest of us, just let the misery and anger wash over you, and like a mud bath, you emerge feeling a lot cleaner.
