Jesus, proven wrong twice in one week in one forum. Rough week for brownie....
Although not surprised i was wrong about it being a single and not an album. Cos i never payed much attention to what they did after 1982 being that it was average.
Their most recent stuff i accidently stumbled across on an oi sampler from.germany ( 'Never drink alone') also contains allot of gay slander. Im not pc at all but i think when you play music to a predominantly unpoliticised audience, ( which a large amount of oi punks, skins, metal heads and more broadly, bogans are) you do run the risk of convincing them your serious....
I.e i think repeatedly referring to homosexuals in a negative light could reaffirm someones prexisting homophobia where as saying 'i fucked an goat and peeped through a hole on the toilet cubicle' is far more obviously having a laugh.
Ive seen them live. In all honesty.id probably watch them again. I like their first l.p allot. But I think they have transcended into a desperate case .
Been thrashing these both on the turntable and headphones on the way to work pretty hard. Some killer new releases. Especially loving the Antisect album - NOT the cover art however, it looks like avengers or star trek or some shit haha. I get they were going for an emblematic Crass-style vibe but it does't really work. I can forgiv it for the tunes though as it's their first in aeons and it delivers like a Killing Joke album! B Boys also goes great like a higher-energy Wire. L.A Witch with some slick psyche/garage rock. New Protomartyr is fully harrowing,poetic and enjoyably bright at the same time. New With The Dead is crushingly phenomenal - it takes a lot to get me hyped on a doom metal album and it goes hard. Metz combining the power and melody of their previous two efforts to make a great third album. Some Alan Vega (my fave album of his) and the new Haram on La Vida En Us Mus.

Shot! Haven't posted in a while so thought I'd chuck up a few more than usual. Yeah it's a little lo-fi but it goes!
