Berlin Blackouts- Kissed By The Gutter LP. Germany’s the Berlin Blackouts formed out of the ashes of Radio Dead Ones with one of the other members splitting off and becoming a member of Brandy Row’s backing band. ‘Kissed By The Gutter’ is the second Berlin Blackouts album and spews 11 nihilistic songs of gutter dwelling punk rock. Influenced by bands like Slaughter And The Dogs, Cocksparrer, Stiff Little Fingers and the Clash, these guys definately know how to write working class guitar punk anthems with vitriolic vocals, a brut voice and a story to tell. Reminded me a little of a combination of mid to late 90’s heavy hitters like the US Bombs, Dropkick Murphy and the Generators. And you can tell they spent some time to record this album as the recording quality on this record is top notch. Import from Germany on Wanda Records.
