Liberty The People Who Care are Angry LP

Missed this when it came out, but it’s well worth listing now. Very much in the English “peace punk” tradition, there are CRASS—like rants set to driving simple punk, poetic conversations and folky interludes a la CHUMBA. Well done.

Liberty Our Voice is Tomorrow’s Hope! EP

LIBERTY has the benefit of political commitment abetted by an original approach to mid-tempo British punk. Great guitar riffs abound on two of the four numbers here, and the overall sound is rough, gruff, powerful, and uncompromising. Good solid release.
