Shorter Than Danny DeVito

Piar 7

Released on August 1, 2006

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

Regardless of what hype is going on right now on what was earlier called the punk rock scene, Budapest's Bankrupt stick to the music they like, and continue writing songs that sound the way punk rock was meant to be. Nasty. Fast. Melodic. Shorter than Danny DeVito. Hence the title of their third album, due 1 Aug 2006 on local label PiaRRecords. Shorter than Danny DeVito is the definitive Bankrupt album. With 11 songs under 22 minutes, Bankrupt’s wide range of influences is displayed by the primal garage beats of “Come Around”, the catchy power pop of “18 Now” (sung by guitarerro William), the So-Cal style punk rock of “Record Store Renegade”, and the Ramones-tribute song “Farewell to the Cretins”. There are no fillers on this album, every song has its own identity, and the drive is maintained from the first second to the last one.

Bankrupt's most recent album clearly shows that they can play old school/new school melodic punk rock with the best of them today! Think Ramones vs. Screeching Weasel vs. Descendents. Being from Hungary shows that punk rock can touch many parts of this world. With this album and their music in general, it's always good to know that Bankrupt can stick to their roots and don't go off and play what they don't want to/what's popular. This type of punk is not my favorite style or cup of tea, as we say, but Bankrupt really surprised me with "Shorter Than Danny DeVito". Only good things to say about their ideas and style. Rocco has a excellent melodic voice that brings life to the already upbeat songs. And having an album with 22 minutes in length is very important in that regards. Shorty keeps the poppy beat with the drums and helps keep the drive with the music. A song to check out is "18 Now" sung by William, in which he sings the melodies to perfection. You have to love his voice and his delivery; the type of song where you want to press repeat. It's a song that's a bit less upbeat then the others; more focused on melody and lyrics. William, owning Piar Records from Hungary, shows how much passion he has for music and dedicating the appropriate time for all his work. Production wise, this album blends all instruments together, you can see that it was done with a lot of thought, vocal delivery is excellent and being that all songs have their own identity demonstrates that they can deliver on any ground. Interesting cover art as well, gotta love Danny D! Booklet is well done with lyrics and all. "Shorter Than..." is the type of album that everyone can appreciate. Great driving music/cottage music/party music! Good times ahead :)
