Blood sugar – Crack Smack Sugar Shit Pop

Blood Sugar comes from California. Frontman Xavier descrives their sound as ‘Afro-punk’. Blood Sugar fuses ‘punk, funk, ska and melodic wizardry’. This decription may perhaps remind you of Bad Brains, 24-7 Spyz, Fishbone or Living Colour, though I think that Blood Sugar often plays more straightforward punkrock, a bit like the New York Dolls. Their music is quite energetic and amusing, and swings back and forth. It is not completely convincing though, which may be caused by the vocals of Xavier, which are not always very powerful. If you like some festive, colourful rock ‘n roll madness, you might find Blood Sugar entertaining.
