Pub Feed by The Chats.
Young Queenslanders The Chats have released the latest instalment in their chronicle of the aspirations of working-class Aussies; in this case the search for satisfaction of the raging hunger brought on by an afternoon spent gambling at the pub TAB.
Josh, Eamon and Matt form the classic power trio and blast out their exuberant brand of Aussie Punk; dubbed “Shed Rock” it follows the well-worn tyre tracks laid up and down the East coast in the ’90s by the likes of Cosmic Psychos, The Onyas and Frenzal Rhomb.
Following on from their 2017 debut album “Get This In Ya” Pub Feed is a stomping ode to the good old counter meal; this is music to swat flies and crack tinnies to and while tongue in cheek it has none of the viciousness and forced irony of modern, so-called “comedy”.
If history is anything to go by the lads, while holding up a mirror to Aussies and digging them hard in the ribs, will most likely come to resemble their subjects; in that respect the legacy of pub rock legends such as Ross Knight and Mad Macka of the Psychos and the great Fred Negro is in good hands.
