Album Review: The Morrisons - Hard Hoarse

24 April 2014 | 2:52 pm | Chris Familton

Hard Hoarse is all about girls, cops, staying young and drugs with suitably clichéd lyrics which, combined with the stock-standard riffs and chanted choruses, make for a pretty forgettable album.



Melbourne punk rockers deliver their debut album and manage to pack 14 songs into half-an-hour. Brevity is their forté but stylistically their sound is a splatter-punk cartoon take on rock'n'roll in the vein of Eagles Of Death Metal and The Hives. It lacks any real anger, disaffection or sonic abandon, key ingredients in the best exponents of punk-edged garage-rock. Hard Hoarse is all about girls, cops, staying young and drugs with suitably clichéd lyrics which, combined with the stock-standard riffs and chanted choruses, make for a pretty forgettable album.
