Wow. This album is incredible. It will definitely be in my top 10 albums this year. This is real hardcore punk music. It completely destroyed me in a good way. It's hard to pick a favourite track. I can't wait to hear more from these guys.
Favorite track: Or You Or You.
Debut seven track album from half Melbourne-half NYC Soakie. It's total no nonsense blistering, fast and energetic hardcore with a vocalist that sounds like she has been chewing on glass everyday since birth. She has a real rasp and anger that is part Nick Blinko (Rudimentary Peni) and Part Vi Subversa (Poison Girls) but the music is totally pummelling and would sit perfectly for those that love pogo punk, Teddy And the Frat Girls, The Feederz and Good Throb in equal measures. Boys On Stage is a real standout with the lyric “There’re too many fucking boys on stage” sticking in your head from one listen.
Soakie’s MLP was recorded by James Rumsey and mixed by Ian Teeple who also took care of the artwork. It comes with a A3 lyric insert to help you sing along to classics such a “Ditch The Rich” or “Nuke The Frats”.

It’s refreshing. They are a solid Punk band who’s not afraid to make people dance. Special Interest understands that PunkRock and Disco are the best lovers. The Passion Of is passionate sh*tkickers making great sounds with a spirt of genuine activism. It’s on my top 5 releases of 2020. DxNxxL
