Jogas Jogas
90's melodic HC/Punk based in Italy, but of international (Croatian, British, Italian) pedigree. Style ranges from oldschool HC in the vein of Gorilla Biscuits and Ignite over melodic HC a la' Bad Religion or Funeral Oration, to poppy Punk Rock stuff like Samiam or Jawbreaker. However, whether they go for slower or faster stuff, it always works. Good hooks, nice guitar work, memorable melodies and great engaged lyrics about stuff like environment, war, friendship, HC scene, relationships, stage diving, etc. The back cover is really something, as each song is represented as a cover of a fanzine (Maximumrocknroll, Heartattack, No Idea, Zips & Chains, Probe, Profane Existence,...). A must have!
