Featuring members of INEPSY and TRUNCHEONS, PROXY is a group of musicians from Montreal Canada who work hard to produce what they do. More in the vein of INEPSY, the songs are catchy and decent if you want something upbeat. This is street punk influenced rock n roll, akin to late UK SUBS. This is recommended for those who like whisky drenched working class oi style rock n roll. Dual guitars both cleanly heard, the production is crisp, nothing muddy at all. Lyrics talk about being in the drunk tank downtown, getting beat up by cops, and general rowdy mischief. Nine songs in about a half hour.

This four piece band from Montreal, Quebec has laid down four powerful tracks on this EP. They combine the power of hardcore with the shout along politics of oi! all mixed together on this release. I’m not good at French, honestly I never was, middle school made us take it all three years that we were there, and it’s been far too long since I was in middle school to remember much, but the band only does two of the four songs in French, so I could shout along with the other two in English. All the songs were really good with “You Have My Back” being the one that really stood out for me with the unity message in it. The band is fairly tight, just a bit sloppy in spots, but it’s not supposed to be perfect is it really? This band has pretty good production on this release, almost live sounding, and the singer really is shouting out the lyrics with passion which makes this one a keeper for me. Take a listen and shout some songs out in English and Francais, you’ll have fun! (Rick E.)
