One year after their Rock’n Folk (Fr) and Maximum Rock’n Roll (USA) acclaimed debut single, Paris based punk band Cheap Riot is returning with their first long player.Sharping their new songs while heavily touring in mainland Europe, sharing the bill with bands like Hinds or Cosmonauts, Cheap Riot recorded this first album in a week with French analog wizard Lo’ Spider. If the band will certainly not play at your prom, Ballroom Portrait is showing us red-hot catchy songs, remembering us class of ’77. As any good punk record should be, Ballroom Portraits is heavily political, sarcastic and raging, but they never forget to bring up the melodies during the rampage.
In our opinion, Riot is still the best way to solve problems, especially when it’s a Cheap Riot.
