Spicy Socks – The Way Review
Japan has always shown off really good punk rock bands. Spicy Socks are the best of pop rock punk using a similar style of Hi-Standard, but using pop punk styles with distorted guitar and fast tempos.
Like a lot of punk bands, there is the obligatory triplet song and on The Way it’s called “Without You.” Spicy Socks are just a fun band to listen to. There isn’t that feeling of over-performance and each songs sounds like they genuinely enjoy making the music their playing.
It’s kind of difficult to really go deep with Spicy Socks because it’s just an enjoyable listen. The band knows how to play the style and the seven songs really show that off.
If you’re looking for some good Japanese punk from early to mid 2000, The Way is a perfect representation.
