Why have I only just now heard about Stiff Richards? The Melbourne group that are releasing their second album Dig in a few weeks time are really rocking the boat of Australian punk. It’s been three years since their self-titled debut on their own “Stiff Records”. Since then they’ve been noticed abroad and Dig is coming out on the excellent German label Erste Theke (who gave Europe Arse, Set-Top Box and RMFC). New songs like “Ostentatious” sounds like everything the Sniffers wanna be. They’ve also had the nerve to put the “Intro” at the end of LP so you have to play the whole thing over.
Go guys! Who said punk was dead?
