Great band from Sydney alert. Osbo is the name of a new band who released their first demo tape about a month ago. The Osbo Demo includes six songs with wonderfully clangy guitars and clattering drums. Running over the top like a steaming train are the belligerent vocals of their singer Tim. This is hardcore punk that sounds distinctly Australian, almost as great as the Optic Nerve tape from last year. It’s great to see more bands following in the footsteps of Rapid Dye and Concrete Lawn. Now I’m just waiting for Eternal Dust and Press Release to make a physical release.
