The Lookouts


The Lookouts One Planet, One People LP

Many of the tracks on this album are stylistically similar, but I enjoyed the grungy, basic production here, as well as the urgent songs and sarcastic lyrics. This is punky thrash with good velocity and an infectious spirit of fun. Good work! I liked this a lot. Filed under “Speedfolk.”

The Lookouts Lookout! It’s the Lookouts cassette

Excellent! A really unusual approach here—punk-rocked-out folk rock in a way, but with more drive and noise. Lots of originals as well as gnarly covers of DYLAN, EVERLY BROS., STONES, VELVETS, STOOGES, MDC, SIMPLETONES, DOVELLS, ROSIE & ORIGINALS—but all rocked out. Get it.
