This System Is Set To Self Destruct. Justine and the Unclean

Every once in a while a song comes by that kicks me in the proverbial gut. This specific one is by this U.S. band. The right mix between alternative and punk rock. In other words: a heavy sound, a great beat but full attention to a great melody as well, including a fine guitar solo and harmonies of course.

Rocking like The Sexpistols, The Runaways and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, while preserving a little extra for The Ramones in brevity and attack and for the younger generation Green Day. Enter Justine and the Unclean. Yes, it rhymes, it has an uncouth sound to the name, while I am perfectly sure at a minimum the ladies brush their teeth regularly.

This System Is Set To Self Destruct is so nice because it takes care of the lows in the hard hitting drums and the punkrock guitars and the highs in the guitar solo and the singing. In the singing the melody is fleshed out in every spot possible. Harmonies seem to come as a second nature to Justine and her dirty partners in crime.

The result is a winner. Yes, I sincerely doubt at this point in time whether a whole album in this style will work for me, but for now I can only raise my fist in the air and shout "LAY IT ON ME". I'll take it from there. For now I just love This System Is Set To Self Destruct, believing every word as well.
