Guerilla Poubelle Il Faut Repeindre Le Monde… En Noir

Socio-political punk rock steeped in DIY ethics is the basis for Paris’s Guerilla Poubelle. Fitting keenly into the pack of American compatriots such as New Mexican Disaster Squad, Kid Dynamite, Dillinger Four and to a moderate extent, Rancid, there is a subtle element of pop that lingers around their otherwise post-hardcore temperament. The end result is an album that has enough girth and vehemence to address its issues with full attention from listeners while still retaining the catchy choruses that encourage sing-alongs and let songs burrow into the brain like voracious maggots. While the band’s novice nature does reveal itself at points due to a minimal three years together — some songs could stand a bit more time on the chopping block, while others have a decidedly brief shelf-life — the exuberance with which they are put forth is redeeming and inspiring.
