The Vermines


The Vermines Bad Childhood LP

Some well done and well produced pop/punk, with occasional gnarly thrash interspersed (like the title track). Some of their obvious influences are the RAMONES and UK SUBS, and maybe some of the ’77-ish Australian punk bands. This band rocks.

The Vermines Sometimes EP

The VERMINES are a French group that performs more than one contemporary style. “Sometimes” is an English-sounding guitar-oriented post-punk song with a steady beat and a bittersweet chorus; the two cuts on the B-side are fast punkers with sing-along parts and an exuberant, satirical feel.
