Nearly 20 years into their career, German pop-punkers Donots are just starting to make a scratch on the national music scene with 2012's Wake The Dogs.
When I say scratch, I mean very minimal, seeing as it seems it's Frank Turner's guest spot on one song that gained the album some worldwide attention. The record as a whole is more miss than hit. The few good songs sound like a stripped down mix between The Clash & The Living End, while the horrible songs sound like bland reinterpretations of the already bland A Simple Plan & Mest. In the end it doesn't leave much to offer as an afterthought or an urge to revisit.
