The Terraces

Union is the first single to be lifted from the self-titled album by London/Melbourne Punks ‘The Terraces’. With a moniker like that one is immediately drawn to memories of late 70’s Britain. Former One Way System singer Gary Buckley (vox) has a distinct vocal style with echoes of one J. Strummer.

The lyrics are honest,heartfelt and have a whiff of working class life. There is real energy in his vocal delivery, you get the feeling they really mean what they say. The song itself reminds me of The Wildhearts at their anthemic best (that’s if Ginger was a cockney)! This song I feel would appeal to a wide range of Punk Rock Fans,from those like myself hankering the days of the Pistols et al, to the likes of Dropkick Murphy’s fans. With ‘old school’ Punk back in vogue and a Jubilee just around the corner the time is right for The Terraces. We look forward to their live shows if this is just a taster.
