In Brief

*** The Living End, "Roll On," Reprise.

April 15, 2001|MARC WEINGARTEN

The members of this Aussie trio may come on like Fosters-swilling roughnecks, but the power of their punk derives from supple song craft driven by strong-arm horsepower. From the title track, a fanfare for the common man that borrows the Clash's street-corner populism, to ripped-from-the-tabloids screeds such as "Read About It," the Living End lives up to its hyperbolic moniker.
