DRUNK MUMS haven’t been fucken round. They’ve taken the reigns in the studio since their 2012 album and jumped off the back of their last LP “GONE TROPPO" to produce “LEATHER” the bands first 7” record.
Consisting of 4 tracks the record takes more influence from Pure Punk & Classic Rock and less from modern Garage while still maintaining the charm that we know from the past.
The record springs to mind early Proto-Punk sounds and Classic Rock & Roll not unlike GG Allin, Ramones, The Stones.


Our take: 4-song EP from this Australian band, and boy is it a ripper. This has a very classic punk feel with that chunky riffing style that I associate with 70s Australian bands like the Chosen Few and Radio Birdman. It's a little more modern-sounding and definitely not a 70s throwback even though there are obvious nods to older punk, like the way that "No Staunch" swipes its vocal melody from "No Talk" by GG Allin. The total retro heads might find the production a little too thick and slick, but if you like the driving, classic punk songwriting of, say, the Carbonas I think it's a safe bet that you won't have any trouble tapping your foot to these four tunes. Recommended.
