Rixe - 2015 - Coups & Blessures

Rixe is a street punk band from Paris, France. Coups & Blessures is their debut 7" EP. Members have also played in Lion's Law, Hard X Times, The Sultans and Youth Avoiders. This no bullshit Oi based street punk. The guitars aren't doing anything fancy except hammering the riffs into your head and the singer has an excellent gruff shout. There are gang vocals all over this EP and even if you don't speak french just try and resist singing along. This is straight to the point, no tough guy posturing Oi based hardcore punk like it should be done. There's not much else to say about this record except that it goes hard and many thanks to La Vida Es Un Mus for releasing it to the world. Highly recommended.
