I first became aware of German punk rockers The Muttnicks after seeing them on a boat in Hamburg Harbour at last summer’s Booze Cruise Festival. I was instantly impressed with their live show, being slightly reminded of The Bouncing Souls during their set. The Muttnicks are a relatively new band in the German punk rock scene, having only formed in 2017, but already seem to be making a name for themselves. Last November they released a brand new EP titled A Dog's Life. It took me way too long to get round to checking it out.
In 2019 we discovered a lot of great bands from Germany thanks to Booze Cruise and The Muttnicks are without a doubt one of my favourites. A Dog's Life shows them as a band who aren't afraid to speak out on big topics and have the ability to write songs that really make you feel something when you're listening to them.
