Gilly Pull The Trigger Reviews
Music Injection (Aus)
"If you like old school punk you will love the latest single from The One Twos. The song called ‘Gilly Pull the Trigger’. This song is protest punk for sure. I certainly love punk and the issues that are highlighted in ‘Gilly Pull the Trigger’. This song stood out for me as it really says what I want to say about the state of Australia’s government policy and the unfairness of the rich getting richer from either tax breaks or kickbacks from the government. ‘Gilly Pull the Trigger is the second single from their album ‘Fight The Good Fight’. The song is a tribute to the former Australian Human Rights Commissioner, Gillian Triggs who fought to bring awareness to Australia’s human rights issues and abuses in our country. The song is fast paced and really stirred up my emotions. I look forward to more punk protests from The One Twos."
Remember when I reviewed the “No Ticker” single by Melbourne band The One Two’s? If you liked it as much as I did you’ll be excited to hear about the new single “Gilly Pull The Trigger” if your scratching your head wondering what I’m on about, let me bring you up to speed: The One Two’s are a 4 piece protest punk band from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. They released their new single on the 12th of July 2019 and it delivers the same kind of slap in the face as their first single. The band also has a great music video to go with the song, it was made by Mark Bakaitis who did the music video for the bands last single “No Ticker”. The song has a similar old school, no frills sound to the first single and is the bands attempt to shine a light on Gillian Triggs, who was once Australia’s human rights commissioner. During her time in this role she championed indigenous and refugee issues and was constantly attacked by the Abbott government as well as the Murdoch press … lets move on before I get carried away and plan a riot. The song starts off at full force with its punchy chorus before leading in to a verse that seems quite musically driven by palm muted guitar, smooth bass and laid back drums. That said the verse also features gang style shout vocals singing “help the people, help the people” which adds to the catchiness of the song. The vocals are delivered with an unmistakable urgency and desperation but also has some snarl.

Good to hear punk and snotty disposition hasn't been lost to the world of music. And if any tune illustrates that point it is this as its entire modus operandi appears to be insouciance on a grand scale. Lo-fi scale too it must be said but we wouldn't have expected anything different from a garage act who pour every bit of invective into their barbed sonics. Good on ya fellas.
