Loudog - Waste Your Time

When a band names themselves after something as recognisable to Ska Punk fans as Sublime mascot Lou Dog then they had better be able to back it up. So, do they?

Well, for starters these guys are German - and whilst Germany have been responsible for some amazing stuff, Ska is not one that immediately springs to mind... sausage is. And sadly, after listening to this album, sausage still is.

It's not a bad album - it's actually quite nice. Quite polished and not a million miles away from Sublime in places although the occasional delve into slightly political material feels clumsy and half-hearted, There's still an undeniably summery feel to this album and, if nothing else, serves as great background music.

The album is available from this site HERE
