Pink Jazz // Independent
Remember when the aim of punk was to sabotage the establishment by highlighting the absurdity of our “social norms” over aggressive instrumentation? Suicide Helpline hasn’t forgotten. On their first release in four years they deliver a time machine. It’s their gift to you, get in and cruise back to punk rock of the 60’s & 70’s. You can’t help but think of The Clash, The Sonics or The New York Dolls when listening to Pink Jazz. It’s punk rock at its purest, catchy hooks that latch onto your brainstem and don’t let go for days with socially conscience lyrics designed to question the status quo. Pink Jazz is a relevant album that needs to be heard. It’s the kind of album that can jump start the youth much like the bands that they emulate were able to do in the past.
