PLASTIC BAG AMBITIONS
The Hatepinks, France’s resident snotty punks, have put out a 13-track release running a concise 17 minutes in length. How’s that for brevity? Armed with candy coated hooks and oozing with late ‘70s-early ‘80s Brit punk spirit, this quartet serves up a rehashed yet fun blend of poppy, bratty, no frills punk that will elicit numerous spurts of pogo-ing in your listening space. If you ever imagined a band that sounded like The Cars meeting Buzzcocks at a Sex Pistols gig, look no further.
