Power Noize

Powerage World Today / Waiting for the War 7″

It’s great to see this white South African anti-apartheid band still expressing themselves in the face of extreme repression. Both songs here are mid to slow-tempo jobs, one with a one-sided anti-Russian attack, the other dealing with the nuclear fear. Sad to see Rubin Rose out of the band.

This South Africa band makes another political stand that shows real courage, but the music here is the best POWERAGE has yet committed to vinyl. Simple, urgent HC with a rich guitar sound is the style — and it’s that combination of power and credibility that makes this a winner. Very strong!
