Roger Miret And The Disasters

by Ewan Wadharmi

When Agnostic Front-man Roger Miret throws a party, you can believe some talented folks are going to show. With Johnny Kray and Rioux - of The Krays and The Bruisers respectively - The Disasters are something of an East Coast supergroup. Rhys Kill contributes zealous guitar to concrete the sound. The meat'n'potatoes street punk has few surprises, but plenty of nice garnishes. Flourishes like piano on "Kiss Kiss" and occasional cheerleaders bookmark the songs. The military punk chorale adds beefy background chanting. Lyrics of upstarts running riots and administering boots may sound clichéd - or as I prefer, comfortably broken in - but it's Miret's animated, drooling vocals that stand out over familiar lyrical content. He's disgusted with you and seems one thin mint away from spewing on your leather. Experience did little to resolve his youthful rage, but it sure helps in the skilled delivery.
