It has often been said that Bombs front man Duane Peters is the punkest man ever to have lived. When Tim Armstrong decided to start a label it is no wonder that he turned to the Bombs as one of the first bands that he wanted to sign-up. Warbirth is a vicious spit and sweat punk rock record served up 77' style. This album is the sonic equivalent to a middle finger.

If you have never heard of U.S. Bombs, they are a punk band with a little rock-n-roll thrown in there, and they have a 77 type feel to them. Their songs have sing-a-long parts, kick ass backing vox and some amazing guitar playing. What more can you ask for?
The album "War Birth" has 14 songs of good ol' Punk rock-n-roll.
The album begins with "That's Life" a cover of Dean Kay. The piano comes in, and you get a picture of a bunch of drunken folks sitting in a bar singing along to the rock tune, guitars come in, and so the madness that is US Bombs begins. "Jaks" was my first introductory to the Bombs. It's a song about skating. "12/25" is a bands hate for Christmas, very sad song. "War Birth" (Title track) is about this kid named Eddie whose father died in the war when he was 4yrs old, and how he grows up in the trailed park, and wants to follow his daddy's footsteps. "Her and Me" is a song about "Punk Rock" love.
So go and check this band, and don't make the same mistake that I made by holding out on buying one of their albums.
