“The Soviet Machines’ vintage power trio approach is well suited for Endino, who captured many of the Seattle grunge scene’s legendary guitar bands. “Get Your Kicks” (is) an upbeat rocker with solid tone — mostly recorded live without overdubs.”- Consequence Of Sound
“As the first album of 2021 that I’ve listened to, this one is gonna be so so very hard to beat. Rocks the f*ck out of your speakers! So be careful to warn the neighbours.” (5 stars)- The Punk Site
The Soviet Machines are an American rock band from Minneapolis, Minnesota. The group was formed as a high school punk project by lead singer and primary member Jack Swagger. The band released its debut album in early 2021 to critical acclaim. The band’s current new single, a cover of David Bowie’s “I’m Afraid Of Americans” is an exciting new sonic territory for the trio. The track was produced by original Social Distortion drummer Derek O’Brien (Fishbone, the Adicts, the Meat Puppets) in Los Angeles. The group is currently gearing up for fall touring and several follow up singles due this fall on famed punk rock label DC-Jam Records.
