Hung like Hanratty ‘What you see is what you get’ – out now on STP Records
Welcome to the madcap crazy world of Hung like Hanratty, where everyday life is brought to you in 4D! If ‘Ronseal’ made music, then the can would say: delivers the perfect stroke of lyrical musical genius! What you see is what you get is the third album from punk-rock-popsters Hung Like Hanratty.
‘’Clampit Town is where the folks like to wear pyjamas and dressing gowns to the shops and they get annoyed by the adverts like Lawyers’ for you on TV. In town, you’ll find some asshole has parked in your Disabled parking space. And the last big news headline was about Harvey Weinstein. When you spot a townie erm… is he having a quick pocket shuffle? …Stop playing with ya cock or I’ll chop the fucker off! At home, you notice the gate is open! Shut my gate, why do we have Neighbourhood-watch if you can’t tell me who’s been leaving my gate open?! But they did spot the Evil Clown, roaming about the sofa shop on the high street. I wonder if he was having an Outer body experience? And, he did, Keep your cat off my garden until the Taxi Driver ran it over in his land rover. Then there’s the Ten Bob Millionaire’s in their pinstripe suits but they aren’t our cup of tea, they’re a bunch of wankers but I’m just Mr Boring and What you see is what you get!’’
That’s the great thing about punk rock, it’s not all anti this and anti that, yes they swear, jest and generally tell it how it is. Just like me summing up the 14 great tracks on What you see is what you get. Welcome to the punk rock show, with bass riffs akin to The Offspring and a burst of bop-a-long Ska punk thrown into the mix, strumming guitars and rocking solo’s and smashing drum rolls, Hung Like Hanratty deliver the goods faster than the Fast track lane at Argos!
