Oily Boys from Sydney is a hardcore band that shares members with Low Life and Orion. They released an EP back in 2014, but it’s taken them until now to gather themselves for a proper album. Cro Memory Grin is obviously the result of many years of playing together and ironing out the perfect sound for this constellation of musicians. It’s a heavy collection of tunes, every bit as full-on as those Leather Lickers EPs we’ve been enjoying lately. Most of the songs here are short and intense, like “My Sex Life” and “Blue Batman”. Two of them stand out due to their length – the bulldozer paced “Stick Him” and the 8-minute opus “GTrance” that closes the set.
