THE MISTAKES ANTI-SOCIAL MEDIA (NBQ)

Dorset Punks Debut Album 9/10

Spearheading a south-coast punk scene revival through their ‘Never Be Quiet’ gig promoting collective/label, this exhilarating live act have followed up their first two self-financed fantastic EPs with an album to delight any lover of lustfully played, riotous riffage fuelled and in-yer-face attitude street punk. Artfully arranged songs, skilfully soaking up the various eras of punk, The Mistakes exude every impressive aspect associated with the genre; powerful catchy guitar, pounding drums, bellicose bass underpinning singalong vocals, a tsunami of wit, sarcasm, defiance and devilment. Be it the provincial rabble rousing of ‘Seaside Resort Town’, the political putdowns on the insanely catchy-chorused ‘Democracy’, class commentary of ‘Underdogs’ and ‘Quitters Get Nothing’, contentious debate through ‘Arguments With Vegans’ or the anti-Trump tirade on skankish ‘Dias Los Errores’, these zeitgeist-zapping songs seize your shell-likes, entice you to dance and make you think, make no mistake! - Viva le rock

"Vol. 2 is a dazzling, very colourful and rare collection of food for thought fused with endless fun. The Mistakes are diverse and talented musicians, with a strong attitude that have no intention of leaving you alone." www.zombiecatreviews.wordpress.com "Never Be Quiet” begins with Richie’s big, brooding bass-twinned with an aggressive in-yer-face vocal onslaught. The anthemic, singalong chorus was just made for the live arena. Rat-a-tat hitting from Lewis (drums), coupled with that 80’s Punk guitar slant and a noodly middle 8, it’s all on show here. This is trademark Mistakes territory which doesn’t disappoint and has a clever “stuttered” finale." www.rock-regeneration.co.uk

The Mistakes are a 5 piece punk rock band from Poole, Dorset. They are represented by their own record label NBQ Records and are known for playing quality punk rock and roll with a ska influence. It's energetic, fast-paced, searing shout-along music that's as much a call to arms as it is an acerbic kick to the head - reminiscent of The Clash, Rancid, Dropkick Murphys, Anti-Flag and The Swinging Utters whilst also managing to sound completely unique.
