Moron’s Morons have put out one of the most exciting Punk records of the year. In fact, it’s one of the most exciting Punk records that we’ve had in a long time! It’s got this filthy, raw sound and will remind of the greats but also turn you onto something brand new.

 Of course, it goes without saying that the best way to play this record is loud. Stupidly loud. Get all the neighbours involved. One of my neighbours constantly sound like they are playing football with about 50 elephants, so it’s my turn to give them something to enjoy. The band have released a few records, but Looking For Danger is their debut full length release (they’ve previously released something via the wonderful No Front Teeth Records) and Looking For Danger has been released via one of the best labels around, Slovenly Recordings and that’s the record I’m going to delve right into.

 

 

Looking For Danger consists of 13 hard-hitting and brain-splattering songs. These are songs you’ll be playing at 2am whilst still a bit drunk, trashing your room as you try to find your way into bed. I can do this without any alcohol. I trip over my books and records a lot. I need to buy a bookcase, but I seem to buy more books and records instead of buying something to store them safely in. One day I’ll get there. One day. You Put Hot In Psychotic is not only the best named song of the year, I think it’s safe for me to call this as my favourite off the record. Imagine using that as a line on someone! If they smack you across the chops then they aren’t the one for you, dear reader. I love how this song then goes right into Noise Addiction with no time for you to catch your breath. Every song slams right into the next, and you have no time to do or think about anything. It’s a beast of a record, and if you’re wanting something really snotty and brutal- this is the one for you. If you’re looking for something gives you the same kick as Young, Loud and Snotty by the Dead Boys, then Looking For Danger is going to be exactly what you need.

 The whole record feels like a beatdown. After one listen, and not even in full you’ll probably feel by the halfway mark that you’ve been beaten up and your nose dripping in blood. As the taste of iron fills your mouth, you soak up every single song in its brutal glory. It’s a trip to listen to, and by no means can you get enough of it. Songs like Wonderlust and Garageman were made to be played so loud you think you’ll never hear again. The whole record is just a straight up noise fest, and I can’t praise it enough. The vocals are distorted in all the right places with the occasional vocals spewed out as a frustrating scream- beautiful!

 Looking For Danger is a fast-paced Punk record that is good for the soul. If you want something to mess with your head, or if you’re looking for something to just lose your mind to- then get this record. Buy all the copies you can. Hand them out to people you know and don’t know. Spread the word! But not in a preachy way- not about that here! It’s just a record that you cannot get enough of. When I listen to it, I get that same buzz I did when I heard KRAUT for the first time. They also remind me a little bit of Shady & The Vamp and DIE BÖSLINGE (one of the best and most underrated bands of all time.)

 It is such a pent-up record, and again they are one of those bands that you just KNOW are insane live. Nothing and no one will be the same once you’ve been to their shows, I can just feel it. I’d imagine it to be utterly wild with everything getting trashed and ripped to pieces on stage. You can really hear the raw energy on record, and it just makes you so certain that their live show is probably the same. Looking For Danger is a tough record, and it isn’t for those who want sickly love songs. This is for those who want something with a bit of bite to it. Truth be told though, it’s more like Tyson chomping off Holyfield’s ear.
