Very calm peace punk sounds, to the point of sounding like the CAPTAIN AND TENNILLE or 7 SECONDS (slight exaggeration, Kevin). A couple of tunes have some verve, but overall this is snooze material. From Scotland.
Here’s a Scottish act who makes a variety of noises, all with intelligent words about war, pacifism, etc. Enjoyable stuff.
21 songs of melodic yet powerful punk, alternating between driving and lighter cuts, enhanced by anti-war lyrics. Contains studio and live material.
I really like this Scottish outfit’s first vinyl offering. The title cut is sort of a folky, undistorted garage pop song with moody anti-war lyrics; “Do They Care” is a strong early CLASH-style punker; and “System of War” is a beautiful and melancholy mid-tempo chant. Varied and evocative.
Slower-paced, sparse, and more post-punk than punk, the music performed by this band is very foreboding. It’s often punctuated by longish guitar solos, but they aren’t annoying or egotistical, and actually add to the effect. The lyrics, while superficially offering nothing but a bleak view of the future, are certainly intelligent, and ultimately do encourage resistance to the 1984 horror show.
