The Martinets return with their rd album in the form of Comeback Tour.
With a lineup of veterans including, Eamonn Bowles: vocals, guitars, Daniel Rey: guitars, Dave Rick: bass, Roger Murdock: drums, you'd expect a solid and strong record. Sound wise The Martinets have their roots firmly planted in the New York Club scene sound from the late 70's, Think New York Dolls, The Ramones, and Dead Kennedys etc. In fact Daniel Rey provides a strong link with the Ramones, having written and produced for them towards the end of their recording career, on albums such as Brain Drain, Mono Bizaro and Adios Amigos’.
The Martinets surly don’t offer up anything new, but what they do do, they do well. The songs come in short blasts, many below 3 minutes in length, and always come in high quality. (Plus great value for money with 17 tracks here!)
A good solid album very much in the same vein as later day Ramones, highly recommended.
