Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes: Blossom
Former Gallows barker gets anchored by his anger
Frank Carter is a familiar if flitting presence on the British punk scene, and as the frontman of the Rattlesnakes, he’s back in his element.
It’s fitting that the opening track of their debut album, Blossom, is called Juggernaut – it dives straight into his unashamedly British anger in a flurry of riffs and fuzz. He may be a grown-up and a dad now, but he’s still capable of being a figurehead for the pissed-off youth who are too young to have had the Sex Pistols.
