The Distrakted - III CD Review "The Distrakted started out in 2006 to show the world Manchester isn't just full of indie pricks. They're succeeding. 'El Sleazo' brings you straight into the raw, fast guitar riffs. The opening track certainly lives up to it's name with it's dirty sound. All the new so-called hardcore/ metalcore bands need to take note- this is real hardcore. Hardcore punk. El Sleazo is the kind of song that gets stuck in your head and leaves you singing along after one listen. Jonny is a talented screamer, his vocals have attitude and angst, but are still understandable. More sleazy guitar licks, more memorable lyrics. 'Dead Space' is proof that everything the Distrakted are doing, they're doing right. Intricate instrumentals, strong, gruff vocals, addictive word-work. Gives you hope for the future of UK punk." Read the full article here Thanks to the wonderful Frankii Torok for her time.
