This is what Dillinger’s Four C I V I L W A R should have been! Minnesota’s Off With Their Heads 2008 “From The Bottom” takes home city heroes D4 influences, puts their own little twist on it, and makes for one fuck of an album.
Beer-soaked, anthematic, chug-a-lug tunes, Off With Their Heads know how to write a damn catchy tune. Buzz saw guitars and vocals that remind me of Al Barr of the Dropkick Murphys, every song makes for one hell of a sing-along (as I’ve seen happen when I saw these dudes live).
While the music somehow remains completely cheery, the lyrics have a mouthful of cynical bite to them. On “Until The Day…”, Ryan snarls “Cause I’ll never let it go/and I’ll just let it grow/until the day I die I fucking swear/I’m gonna make your life as miserable as mine.”
“From The Bottom” is an album that every punk fan needs to listen to… over and over again.
