BILLY BONES- 'We're Selfish' 7" ~EX THE SKULLS!
BILLY BONES- 'We're Selfish' 7". Billy Bones has been involved in punk rock for three decades now. He was the frontman for the legendary Skulls from Los Angeles back in the first wave of punk rock. After a couple years, The Skulls disbanded and many members sadly passed away. Nearly 25 years later, Billy reformed The Skulls with new members and put out a bunch of really enjoyable albums that not only didn’t tarnish the legacy of the original band but actually added to it, which is not an easy feat to pull off. A couple years ago The Skulls disbanded and after a bit of down time Billy Bones has returned with his new outfit aptly named The Billy Bones. They pick up right where The Skulls left off and if you didn’t know better, you’d really think it was the same band. In fact I wonder why bother with the new name except for the fact that none of the members of The Skulls carry over to this new band.
The Billy Bones music is 1970’s influenced melodic punk rock. You can sing along to it but it has a real punch to the music and isn’t the least bit wimpy. The guitars are loud and a bit distorted and the beat is pretty straightforward which sets for a great backdrop for Billy’s trademark vocals. LIMITED TO 300 COPIES ON PURPLE AND GREEN SPLATTER WAX!!
