The latest reviews:


Paris Violence - L'âge De Glace

Islika Productions/KB Records - CD -


1251_pv_ladg.jpgIn 2020 celebrate Paris Violence 25 years anniversary of the band and they have released some stuff in re-edition and this is one of them. Album was originally released back in 2001 (as 9th album of the band) and now it is out CD in digipack through Islika Produktion/KB Records and on LP through Common People Records. Both versions have new cover art (and on both albums is booklet with original art which I like more) and songs are remastered. Together you may check 10 songs in their classic style of Oi! wave – keyboards, amples, acoustic guitar, solos, etc.... (check the beginning of Psykhouchka or Troisième Nuit Dans La Bagnole for example). Compared to current records this is little bit rawer and twenty years abbys between the records can be heard mainly on Flav´s vocals which are rougher. In that time only Flav recorded all instruments. Topics of the songs deal with history (Proti současným nahrávkám kapely je tohle trošku hrubší, přecejen odsup dvaceti let je poměrně dost a nejvíce je to asi patrné na Flavově vokálu, který prostě kdysi zněl hruběji. Taky to byl pouze Flav, který v té době nahrával všechny nástroje. Témata songů se týkají opět historie (Paris Commune for exaple in song Raison d´Etat) or lonelines of man in modern city which looks live but finally it is desert (Dur d´etre un ange) or the time when idols fell (Le crepuscule des idoles). In booklet are all you need – lyrics, photos, pictures plus a few words about the record (all in French). Classic.

The Choice Few - One Way Street

Rebellion Records/LSM Vinyl - LP -


1250_ch_f.jpgThe Choice Few is new band with Mike (Last Crusade, Victim´s Choice, Thankless Graft or No Heart) in line up which came from Vancouver, Canada and this is their debut which will be released through Rebellion/LSM. On album you may check seven songs including cover Nobody Loves Me from The Letters (which was originally released as a single in 1980). LP will be out in the middle of February and it is limited to 200 black and 300 silver copies with lyrics and download code inside. Tha band plays in five and their music is mixture of pub rock, glam and sreetpunk. Do not expect hard and heavy and fast stuff, melodies are slower, guitar is without booster with some nice tunes and solos (just check the first song on B side Ain´t Got a Clue for example) plus covered vocals (first song Out on a Tenner for example). If you check the title song (which is really slow :)) One Way Street on youtube you will recognise how the whole album sounds. It is hard to pick one songs which is above the other but I really like Start Anew with perfect melody and vocals in strophes. If you like above mentioned bands plus some mod stuff like Giuda or Hard Wax, this is exactly for you.
