Guttersnipe Army - Never Die

Powerfist Records - LP -


1113_ga_nd.jpgRe-edition of this cult album was released in 2017 on Spanish label Powerfist Recrods and it is limited to 300 copies on black vinyl. Original version is from 1989 and it was released on Link Records (interesting is that they had offer also from Rebelles Européens with the possibility to have songs on Debout compilations) and it was released also as a split CD with The Glory on Step 1 Records. The band comes from Leicaster and it was founded on the ruins of bands called British Born and Destroy the Reality. Their founding members Spen and Kelly were co-founders of English Rose which frontman Jonesy helped Guttersnipe Army since the beginning with lyrics for example (like to the song British Born). This album was recorded in five pieces and it is pure Oi! with no compromise similar to tbands like Condemned 84, Close Shave (they have first live gig with them) or early Section 5 so it means middle rhythm, time to time solo and rougher but clear vocals. Topics of the lyrics can be guessed from the song titles like The Real Oi! (patriotic music for British youth), Never Die, England´s Soldier (about the situation in Northern Ireland), War Dead (anti-war song about war victims), Armed Robbery (about dangerous streetlife), Maniac (with nice solo), Just the Same (about cops) etc... Inside the cover (which is same as before) is A4 booklet with many photos, three zine interviews and short story from the book Here Comes the New Punk. Great re-edition of classic album.

Reconquesta - És per honor

Pretty Shitty Town/Disco Nightmare Records - EP -


1112_rcqs_eph.jpgThis is promo single to the brand new album called Valors Perduts which will be probably ou this year. Single contains two songs – title one És per honor (For the Honor) in Catalan on side A and Unbeaten in English on side B. Cover is done similar to their previous releases – it means black/white drawn cover and paper with lyrics inside. On the backside are photos to each songs – battlefield with graves and fight. Vinyl is black with big hole in the middle. First song starts with nice guitar tune, it is in middle rhythm and it is about the fact that man should not betray his ideas even for the highest price. Second one Unbeaten is little bit harder maybe because of the fact that English doesn´t fit to singer as much as Catalan language. Song is about the fact that you should stand your ground even you are part of one man army. At the end of the song is nice guitar tune again. Instead of lyrics there is no info about the band inside but you should read older reviews and interview here on BB (but I don´t know if the line-up is still the same or if there are any changes). In line-up were some members which play also in Codi de Silenci. The band keeps their music on same level and I have no reason to change the rating…and by the way the title song is really great!
