Distro-y Records and EpiFat Records bring you the debut LP from Bar Tape. Following up their split with Flagpolers (members of An Slua). The Dublin 4 piece bring a gnarly melodic punk rock sound full to the brim with a catchy skate punk, full of harmonies that just fill your head with an earworm that will keep bringing you back to the bar for a refreshing dose of Bar Tape.
Full of familiar face of DIY underground punk in Dublin, bringing a punk energy and humour that really captures the joy and fun of punk rock with a sound similar to early Hot Water Music, Latterman and Dillinger Four. This is a enjoyable record and will be the best way to start 2023 when it lands in January pre-orders soon.
PS The flyer still has me in stitches except a lot more from Bar Tape both musically and satirically punktastic puns.
