They have a really stupid band name, those guys from Grober Knüppel [really hard to translate!]. That´s probably German humour that not even the Germans understand. Unbeugsam [Stubborn] is their newest outing. It contains 12 songs that are pretty much all in the same style. Grober Knüppel are somewhere between the poles of hardcore, noise and punk rock, to which a tiny bit of poppy indie rock was mixed. Those, who immediately think of Full Speed Ahead or Punishable Act are exactly right on the money. You get relaxed rocking guitars that only wait to break out in an eruption the next minute; the vocals are sometimes soft, sometimes harsh; the song structure is equally angry and catchy. So, the 12 songs on the record can only win. And that´s exactly what they do. What´s fun for a whole album, isn´t bad in compact form, either.
