Norfolk's Finest | The Bottle Babies

by Matthew Leon

Norfolk’s Finest, a new EP released by Norfolk rock/punk band The Bottle Babies, blasts through distorted power chords and screaming guitar solos as lead singer belts out like Johnny Rotten. With a sound reminiscent of The Ramones, Iggy Pop & The Stooges, and The Sex Pistols, Norfolk’s Finest is a straightforward raucous punk-rock album. With lyrics like “I’m not going to change who I am just to please you/Cuz I don’t really give a damn about you,” the album fits the punk mindset. That being said, Norfolk’s Finest is just as much punk as it is good old fashioned rock n’ roll. The highlight of the album for me would be “Cry Baby,” the final track on the five-song EP. With a bluesy harmonica intro, this cover of a song by The Waldos rocks hard and is faithful to the original while adding a unique touch. Without a doubt, the EP is definitely one of Norfolk’s finest releases. If you’re looking for some good local rock and roll with punk flair, check out Norfolk’s Finest by The Bottle Babies.
