Review: The Threats

The Threats
“Twelve Punk Moves”
(Dr. Strange)

I doubt anybody outside of Scotland has really been waiting for a Threats reunion, much less a new album, but here it is.  While they still play competent oi-punk with a bit of the metal kick bands like GBH and The Exploited circa 1985 added, it definitely doesn’t provide any fresh angles on “punk”.  I doubt these guys are doing anything more than just having a good time, but it’s kind of silly if they really take any of their tired punk rhetoric to heart and/or expect anybody else to.  These literally are just “moves”.  And, yes, twelve of them.
