MADE IN BROOKLYN
Hardened punk rockers The Deacons boil over with passion and conviction on the quartet’s 12-track old school offering. This outfit, born and bred from Brooklyn makes a firm point that the borough offers much more than trendy Williamsburg, as songs like the blue collar stomp of “Don’t Need a Reason” or the rejuvenating “29” display some mighty fine street punk. Keeping it simple, energetic, and interesting, songs like “I Feel Fine” and “Of My Father” provide the kind of insightful expositions behind crashing power chords that your new fangled punk band couldn’t muster even after repeated listening of Social Distortion. The Deacons would fit best in between your Dropkick Murphys and The Casulaties.
