Five
records into it, Boston blue collar punks Street Dogs have finally decided to
title an album after themselves – usually a debut album move, but well worth
the wait in this case considering this is by far their strongest offering yet.

 

Even
coming in at 18 tracks, there is very little fat to trim on Street Dogs, with the average song
clocking in at a Ramones-worthy 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Hit ‘em hard, hit ‘em
fast and get outta there.

 

Like just
every other record by the group, led by former Dropkick Murpys front man Mike
McColgan, there’s the obligatory Union rallying song (“Up the Union”) and a
pints-in-the-air pub track (“Punk Rock and Roll”), but most of all, the album
is crammed with fun, witty and politically-inspiring punk rock songs. If you’re
gonna name a kid after yourself, you might as well pick the brightest one.
