The Transplants are a supergroup consisting of Rancid singer/guitarist Tim Armstrong, Blink 182 drummer/DJ Travis Barker, and a dude named Skinhead Rob who sings and raps. It sounds odd on paper but they pull off a sound that’s fun and infectious, mixing rock, reggae,punk, funk, dance music, hip hop, and whatever else into a sound all their own.
The 2017 release Take Cover is the Transplants 4th album. It’s only seven songs, five of which are covers. Hence the album title.
Normally covers are hit or miss. But I found they knocked these songs out of the park
Here is the track listing:
Hopefully this isn’t the last we hear from these guys. Original music is in low supply.
