Tonight We Ride - Of The West
Hailing from Helena and counting among their influences "Montana Bartenders!!", Tonight We Ride are setting themselves up for pigeonholing, and they seem to be fine with this. Their debut album 'Of The West' (there it goes again) is full of songs about bar whores, drinking and fighting, and general obnoxiousness. It's full to the brim of the good ole punk 'fuck-you' energy.
Sometimes they can take it all a little too far - 'Cain Station' sounds a bit like they recorded it pissed, and not in a good way, and 'It's Cocktail Time You Pussy Motherfuckers' is an utterly pointless twenty-eight second interlude, but it leads into 'Other Side Of The Wall', which is a melodic and lyrically cutting ballad, despite the ever-present and mostly unnecessary incidences of the F-word.
'Duke Of New York A#1' is probably the tallest high point because it stands out - more thought, less swearing and yelling - it only crops up in appropriate places. It's an album of mixed feelings - there's good stuff in there, but it takes a bit of digging to find it.
