Amateur Party - Truncheons In The Manor LP ROR 016
Truncheons in the Manor is the first Lp by Philadelphia's Amateur Party in 3 years and their first full length ever. The band recorded 10 tracks with drummer Steve Roche between 2009-2010 to make this opus of an album. The band has an all-star line up of Philadelphia musicians that have played in Armalite, Off Minor, Kill the Man Who Questions and more but really stands on its own without a resume. Amateur Party Similar to their style reminiscent of Reggae Punk/Post Punk on their previous releases the band develops their sound even further to maker their best and most cohesive recording to date. Fans of The Jam, Minutemen, Ted Leo, and Kill Rock Stars bands take note, this record fits in perfectly with those of an older punk rock sound.
