AntiProduct have been around for what seems like an age, always threatening to break through into the big leagues but never quite making it, that my friends may be about to change!
Please Take Your Cash is the best album the guys have ever put out. It's a bright, uplifting pop rock album with songs that are strong enough to tackle a herd of charging rhinos! Imagine the Beach Boys playing contemporary pop rock with a slight punk edge, it's perfect.
'Surfing The World' sets
the standard, a great 3-minute blast of pure pop rock harmonising fun! 'Arms
Around The World' is a slightly dirtier, sludgier track that works just as well!
Next up is one of my old favourites 'Best Day Of Your Life', "And tomorrow is gonna be even better". Talk of positive lyrics for a song, it really makes you feel like something totally special just happened, something that changed your life and you're going to remember. 'Parties All Over The World' is a less chaotic, but nonetheless special pop rock gem where Alex's vocal chords really shine. 'Bungee Jumping People Die' is yet another classic. AntiProduct pile on the Beach Boy comparisons with a cover of their classic 'Good Vibrations', a song that I swear sounds even better than the original! 'Tell Me What You Want' has an almost Cheap Trick-esque intro, which is so good that the chorus is almost a bit of a let down. Another good pop punk piece any way, which keeps getting better all the way up until the end. 'Let's Get It On' just can't be described in words. This song is so silly it's simply genius! This is followed by ballad 'When We Find Love', which starts off all romantic and we're all waiting for a kick "System of a Down" style but it's actually an out and out ballad and it's a bloody fine song! 'I Will Not Go Quietly' is the last song and ends the album with a fine metallic blast.
'Run Out' is just that, 6 seconds of silence and 'Girls Talk' is a minute and three quarters of girls talking, hmmm ok.
Please Take Your Cash is a great album, which I highly recommend to fans of the pop rock punk genre's. I swear this is the strongest thing that AntiProduct have ever put out!
The guest musicians reads
like an independent music's who's who with the album featuring spots from, Drumming
legend Robin Guy, uber-talented rock-slut Chris Catalyst
even Jamie Oliver,
(although I doubt this is the TV Chef lol!)
The album is a truly independant release, no label major or independent. Produced by none other than Sylvia Massy, who worked with the likes of Johnny Cash, System of a Down and Tool.
"Please Take Your Cash" can be bought directly from antiproduct.com, or you can find AntiProduct on MySpace or Facebook and message Alex or Claire to get their Paypal account and order your copy. Apparently, half way through the first print (I think they're now sending out the second lot) Alex had made 20% of the cash he made with Life Sex & Death when they were signed on Warner, so cutting the middleman is definitely paying off. One more reason to order this concentrate of legal amphetamine and find out more about AntiProduct.
I love AntiProduct, and
I love this album!
