- My Pal by God
7/10 Keelan 11th March 2015
The first ever release from Melbourne-based punk rock outfit GOD is an Australian cult-classic. Independently released in 1987 when the 4 members of GOD were only 16-17 years old, "My Pal" was successful enough to sell in the thousands. Since then the influential track has been covered by multiple bands including modern Aussie punks Violent Soho.
Musically, the track is built on a single note guitar riff that never holds back from start to finish. The drums are brilliant - fast and a bit messy - but that's half the idea of this kind of punk music. Vocals are kind of shouted over the rest of the mix, but again this is an aspect of the genre. The bass is driving and repetitive, but over all this is a track you'll really need to listen to in order to appreciate. Underground Aussie punk isn't for everyone, but if it's for you, this track is timeless and brilliant.
