The 45 Adapters - "Dress Well, Drink Heavily" - $3.99 LS7117
The band describes their music as a truck full of Otis Redding records crashing into a truck full of Cock Sparrer records. Even that description fails to truly cover the broad sweep of influences which can be heard in their music. Coming from deep roots in classic Oi! and street rock, 45 Adapters also brings smart Mod sounds, nods to 60’s soul and reggae, glam, pub rock and even hints of classic rock to the table. The end result is a truly unique sound combined with original subject matter in what can be a stagnant genre.
45 Adapters have been lucky to share the stage with many notable lights of the streetpunk scene, including INFA RIOT, TEMPLARS, GUIDA, STOMPER 98 and THE BUSINESS. In addition, they play several shows a month in the NYC area with bands from genres as diverse as Mod, Ska, Hardcore and Garage.
"Make no mistake, there are elements of gruff street rock present, but it’s clear that these lads also have an ear for Jamaican ska and R&B, and it shines through not only in the music, but also in the production..." - Razor Cake
"I dig these skins from NYC; they have a classic early UK skin sound kinda like INFA RIOT or the BUSINESS , but mix it with bass-heavy 70's rock licks like THIN LIZZY or some shit... ...total sing-along goodness." Tim Brooks, MRR
