The latest reviews:


Gol Nord - Llevant U.E. Rock´n´Oi!

Prevail - LP -


1182_golnord.jpgThis is repress of Spanish football project with members from Glory Boys, Riot Squad and Shaved Dogs which is out on Prevail Records. Original version was released on CD in 2006 and on LP in 2007 on Dim Records. Current version is out in two different colors and two different covers (which I like more then original one) plus test pressing (with rip off cover from Tolbiac Toads). On LP you may check 14 songs (including Intro) with 7 covers from 2 Minutos (Todo lo Miro), Dimple Minds (Durstige Männer), Dire Straits (Walk of Life with keyboards at the beginning), Zóna A (Cervena Armada), Skinkorps (Vive la Biere), Cockney Rejects (Hate of the City) and Sham 69 (Ulster). Covers and also their own songs are put into football topics which deal with their club Levante UD founded in 1909. Band plays in five pieces and you can really hear it…covers are great but their own stuff also – just check songs like Forca on Tour, Sempre Presents or Llevant + Alcohol with nice refrains and singalong melodic music but also heavier things like Llevant U.E. Skinheads or faster 3u24. Inside is paper with lyrics, photos, short story of the band (just in Spanish) and two postcards. In some songs didn´t fit lyrics to the song title but when you pay attention you will get it. Who likes Glory Boys, Mercancias and other Spanish bands will like this project because simply it is Glroy Boys with different vocalist. Nice reedition on quite new label which started to release top quality records!

Marass/The Nitters - Punks not Red

Olifant Records - EP -


1181_marass_nitters.jpgSplit EP of two Polish bands which are singing in their mother tongue was released in 2018 on Olifant Records and i tis limited to 300 copies (150 with this and 150 with different cover). Each band has there one song called Punx Not Red. Nitters song is taken from their one and only album from 2007 called Nic Nas Nie Paca, song from Marass is released just on this EP. Nitters music is more technical because they are playing in five pieces, tempo is middle and whole song is underlined by short guitar solo. Interesting fact is that this song was covered by Stavros for his project Spirit of Patriot. Nitters vocals are more sang and not shouted like Marass vocals. Marass recorded this song in three pieces and guitar and bass was recorded by one person. Song is faster due to thy drum rhythm and there is also one guitar tune which lead you through whole song. Both songs deal with the problém that reds want to influence punk and your opinions. Bot lyrics are on the back cover of the EP. Fine stuff with typical Polish sound.
