The Serpent Motors are a three piece Punk Rock band from the Peak District the band consists of Rob Townsend (guitar/vocals/songwriting, Matt Croney (Bass and vocals) and Mikey Buck (Drums).
As I was checking Project Metal Music’s emails, I was contacted by Rob, to see if i was up to doing a review of their E.P. Oil On The Fire, so basically I said, We are always up for doing reviews.
So he sent me through the E.P. When I got home to listen to the E.P., I put it on I immediately like what I was hearing. Now if you like old school punk from the 70’s you will like The Serpent Motors. When I looked at the biography on their Facebook page, I saw their influences, and some of them are Sex Pistols and The Stooges, and I could hear those influences on the E.P.
When I was a kid back in the 70’s, Punk was at its height in 1978, that is when I was really starting to take notice and listening to in general, and primarily the punk scene, and Oil On The Fire E.P. took me back to that time.
These guys are well accomplished as punk musicians. The tracks that stood out for me are Head Trip, Oil On The Fire and Speeding as these really captured the essence of the Punk movement of the 70’s.
If you, like I said before, love the old school Punk rock you’ll love The Serpent Motors. I would highly recommend that you go and check these guys out either on their Facebook page or on their Soundcloud page, you will not be disappointed.
I would give The Serpent Motors a 4.5 out of 5, spot on guys the E.P. is awesome.
