Midnight Bombers - Evil Streets
Right off the bat in 2007 I get a masterpiece of hardcore, punk and thrash
called Evil Streets. While emo kids will think it's too fast and screamcos
too smooth, in reality it's like a run away riot on the verge of total
chaos. This reminds me of the hardcore shows I used to see at the Metroplex
in Atlanta about 83, it only slows down enough to wipe the sweat clean
before slamming back into the pit. In a spot or two they slip some metal in
just to stay mean. What makes Evil Streets a great album is that there are
NO bad songs, no complete messes of screaming and out of tune drunkeness
I've come to expect from 'tha lineage of current hardcore bands, just ass
kicking, rougher & faster than a three dollar whore, bombast! The title cut
gives a great dictation as to what it does mean, to hit the west coast and
come close to losing your ass! 'Cause I've been there baby! "Back and Forth"
sums up the hidden animal in us all, and lays down the two step like she
ain't lyin', she's satisfying! Midnight Bombers rock the fuckin' house!

Kristofer Upjohn

This CD is a big, ballsy fuck-you, which is exactly how it should be.
The Midnight Bombers know their punk. Weaving in more straight-laced and textured hard rock with their classic punk sound. Raw melodies mix up with feisty aggression and in-your-face attitude. The music is high energy and totally satisfying for the hardcore fan of punk rock. The group's unibomber image is also a nice touch, mingling nicely with the group's iconoclasm, which resonates from every song. This CD is a big, ballsy fuck-you, which is exactly how it should be.

I caught the Midnight Bombers at a local bar a few weeks back and was completely blown away with this bands raw and very intense performance. I was happy to see them interviewed in last months issue and I am even more ecstatic as being able to tell Zero readers what a brilliant fucking record Evil Streets, the bands latest offering, is! Everything from the production (done at the guitar players studio) to the songs themselves and anything in between is catchy, in your face, and very very punk rock!

A notable highlight is the cover of Aggression’s “It Can Happen”, which will be featured on an upcoming tribute to Aggression coming out later this year. This is some really gritty, dirty and very much in your face punk rock that carries with it a very sarcastic attitude ala the Dead Kennedy’s. I personally have not been too on the up and up with punk rock in recent years, however, once in awhile a band pops up out of the woodwork and catches my eyes and ears. Evil Streets not only just caught my ears; it hit me over the head and kicked my ass!

snotty, loud punk, reckless and rough...
Midnight Bombers = The Nerve Agents + The Bronx + Any number of early 80s hardcore bands
The members of the Midnight Bombers all wear gigantic sunglasses and plain black hoodies with the sleeves ripped off (because sleeves aren't punk) to attain an image inspired by the ever-lovable Unabomber. This should set off a red flag for any learned music fan, as everyone knows that there has never, ever been a good gimmick band. However, after only a few tracks of Evil Streets, my worries were alleviated and the wacky image that the band concocted for itself vanished from my mind. The Midnight Bombers deliver a snotty and loud brand of punk that borrows equally from the likes of The Misfits, New Bomb Turks and Black Flag to bring back a sense recklessness and roughness that's more and more rare in punk these days. If you like discordant guitars, relentless drumming and lots of garage-punkish yelling, this record's for you. Evil Streets is a little rough around the edges, but hey, that's punk rock for ya. The music of the Midnight Bombers speaks for itself, and they are definitely good enough that they don't need to hide behind their Unabomber image. -Ricky Vigil

This one comes in a fantastic looking shiny black digipak with a pair of mirrorshades reflecting the hooded rock n’ roll felons on the cover. They all dress like the Unabomber, see. I thought it was sorta counter-productive that a band full of midnight bombers would release a CD that forces you to leave your fingerprints all over the thing, but maybe I’m taking the image too far. Anyway, “Evil Streets” is full of knife-slashing punk rock, fast n’ mean with a palpable black leather slither to it. Pretty comparable to other San Franpsycho bands like the Grannies and Dirty Power*, the Midnight Bombers offer up scuzzy, howling, garage-wrecking noise for snipers and stalkers. I dug the menacing “Shanghaid” the best, because it sounds like a guy getting pummeled to death. Which is what you fuckin’ get when you’re out on the Evil Streets, baby.

*As you might imagine, these being mad bombers and all, their identities are a secret, but I would not be surprised if a Granny or Dirty Power-er was involved.

Solid punk rock with a brashness and straight-ahead energy.
MIDNIGHT BOMBERS-Evil Streets (Wondertaker, CD)
The Bombers’ vocalist Jerry is a native MassHole (i.e. he’s from my neck of the woods), formerly with Bastard Squad. He relocated to the Bay Area some years back and now fronts this band, originally known as Deadfalls (not to be confused with Deadfall). They’ve released a 7” and I’ve got a demo CD-R, as well. Solid punk rock with a brashness and straight-ahead energy. But there’s some snakiness in the guitar playing and other twists—such as the PIL-like dubbiness that starts “Satan’s Children.” The more interesting songs have those little wrinkles and it’s all played at a fast pace. The lyrics expose a tortured psyche—introspective and troubled and it’s echoed by the darker shadings in the music. (PO Box 470153, SF, CA 94147-0153, www.wondertaker.com)
