Male Bonding, the U.K. love child of the Ramones and Catherine Wheel is a punk rock trio that knows how to play loud and fast but maintains a melody at the same time. The band formed in 2008 and has been signed to Sub Pop Records. They have a ton of singles out and you can check out their cranked out sound on the appropriately titled “Year’s Not Long”. The members, John Arthur Webb (vocals, guitar), Kevin Hendrick (vocals, bass) and Robin Silas Christian (drums) form an almost perfect trinity for having fun and rocking out. They have a full length LP Nothing Hurts that was released in 2010.
Male Bonding are a male version of the Vivian Girls in terms of sound, and their guitar and drum driven rock melodies are sway worthy or bounce worthy depending on your mood.
