ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
One of the TOP 5 Records of 2008 - BIG WHEEL MAGAZINE
"...beat pounding and harmonizing from track to track."

"Bobot Adrenaline play Radio Tikrit and they must have taken inspiration from Rock and Roll Radio by the Ramones and updated it to todays insane world scene. Kind of a funny beat and a screaming talker lead singer who is telling it like it is. Ok, it did remind us of Holiday in Cambodia a little bit too. Very old skool punk." - Sugar Buzz Magazine

A band at the threshold; Bobot Adrenaline is next. They have always been inevitable...a symptom of your environment, a product of this pre-fabricated social order. This complex punk trio is the 11th hour filibuster, the legitimate rebel yell that breaths in the air around you then blasts it back in your face with a torrent of amps, strings and discourse that will burn your lungs clean. And in that moment, before your ears burst, you will cry out that you have been awakened to something new, something honest, and something that is moving fast toward the horizon.

Three figures carved from the City of Angels stake out their no spin zone each night releasing a hurricane of faith, anger and madness before a steadfast group of fans. Called punk, pop, reggae, gypsy, even ska, the power trio dodges traditional labels and acknowledges only that their music is the truth. Launching into their set each night, the trio abandoned conventional set lists in 2006 opting instead for the free form calvacade - never knowing where it will take them. The band members themselves never know what song is coming next until it starts.

Marching on their own orders, Bobot Adrenaline brings their debut e.p. this year, UNFURLED, a six song work that revels in rebellion, disgust, and betrayal at its most patriotic. Produced by Tommy Stinson (The Replacements, Guns N Roses, Soul Asylum) and front man Pepper Berry, as well as additional tracks produced by Joey Santiago (The Pixies) look for Bobot Adrenaline to storm across the American landscape without mercy, bringing the wasteland to its knees, and erecting in its place: ideals, hope, and some incredibly loud rock n roll.

BOBOT ADRENALINE is Pepper Berry (vocals, guitars), Corey Mac (bass), Bryan Panzeri (drums).

Great album a little disappointed Penalty Box was not on it but other than that there's not much that can be criticised. Fun upbeat and catchy music with very thought provoking lyrics.

Bobot Adrenaline sounds a bit like a mix of the Dead Kennedys and Pixies

History may yet be kind to George W. Bush, but Bobot Adrenaline will never be. Replete with Bolshevik—nay, FRENCH Bolshevik—artwork and the articles for W’s impeachment in the liner notes, this angry CD is to the left of everything. These “persons of interest” are tightly wound, politically unhinged, and there’s a big fat file on them somewhere. But it’s still nice to hear an LA punk band pissed off about more than being an LA punk band.

This really shouldn’t work. In places it does. At six cuts and only 20 minutes long, Bobot Adrenaline wisely makes their point and then GTFO before things get old.

Radio Tikrit’s jumpy take on pre-invasion propaganda piped into Bagdad is an earworm. \"Small World\" won’t get it out, and your first scrips may not either. And that’s not even be the best song on the CD—that goes to \"School of the Americas\" or \"State of Affairs\". Your call, there.

Pepper Berry’s vocals are more rhythmic screed than actual song, befitting material ranging from Coca Cola’s cadmium-laced fertilizer in India, Pakistani arms deals, and –wait for it— Halliburton war contracts. The lyrics might just send you to Google— or not. So it’s a good thing that Corey MacGregor and Brian Panzeri’s rhythms are impossibly tight, because the hooks and subject matter hit from weird angles that bear repeated listens.

Be prepared—you could be that guy who wakes up to politics, and no one will listen to you until you loan them this CD. And then you’re gonna have to ask for it back.




PS. Lest you think I’m a Bobot shill, I’d tattoo Bobot lyrics on my chest, sans irony. My friends trained Contras, and I legally can’t tell you about my job. Who Would Jesus Bomb (WWJB)? Syria. (Hey, somebody’s gotta keep the world free enough for music like this).
