The Bronx

Four albums in and another eponymously titled from the Los Angeles punksters, who moonlight as a mariachi band. 

Yes, The Bronx might be a little simplistic in their album-naming conventions but there's nothing throwaway about the guitar blitzed anarchy of songs such as Along For The Ride, Youth Wasted and Under The Rabbit .

Life Less Ordinary is a pace-changer with a fuzzed out sludgy guitar intro,  a lyric - ''I'm not ashamed to say I've lost my mind'' - worthy of a big ballad epic and a melody that's insistent but so understated it creeps up on you.

The Bronx could give Green Day a lesson in less is more.  Album No 4 is infectious enough to warrant a health warning.
