Combat BC/The Tenderizers - Close Alliance

DIY - LP -


1195_combat_tender.jpgDIY split LP of Combat BC with Melanie (you may know her from her previous release Melanie and Secret Army) from German city Köln and The Tenderizers from Belgian city of Brugge is out on 180 g LP limited to 300 copies (first 100 contains songbook from Combat BC). LP is sold out or the prize on discogs starts at 32 Euro. Each band has there six songs English. Combat BC has fine guitar (like solos in Without a Pride or Whisky Song), bass is loud and you may hear it in each song (just check rock´n´roll riffs in Warriors) but the main is vocal – Melanie knows how to shout. Rhythm is faster and their music is full of energy. I really like their last song Wanker. The Tenderizers are playing in five and this is their third release. Music is slower and calmer (vocals are not so raw :)) and two guitars are always better then one. In last song Nothing at All you will hear female vocal in singalong refrain. Sometimes I hear Badlands, sometimes are hear older Skrewdriver (due to vocals especially on their first song called What the Wise Man Says). I really like their song Till the Music Dies (which was released on their debut CD also). Whole LP is manufactured as a gatefold and inside are band photos, song titles and thankslist. On the front and back cover is coat of arms of the city which band comes from. Interesting thing for fans of not so known bands all done in DIY which is not necessary have to be b/w copied cover.

Pressure 28 - Way Back Then

Powerfist Records - LP -


1194_p28wayback.jpgWay Back Then is LP/CD compilation which is out on Powerfist (or Break the Chains Records) with 16 (and on CD 17 songs – CD is including cover from YDL Skinhead 88 – Pressure 28) songs. The band is playing since the beginning of the 90´s and they have released just one album (Unified from 2011 which was released after their reunion), one EP in 90´s called Up Yours on Helen of Oi! Records. In 1992 they have released demo tape called Anfum´s. So what are the songs on compilation? The band has appeared on many compilations in 90´s like Oi! the New Breed, Working Class Anhems, Oi! it´s Streetpunk, More Working Class Anhems, Oi! the Next Generation or EP to the zine Skinhead Times. Last two sonfs from LP were previously unreleased – Clocking In and The Lion Still Roars. Because i tis compilation, the songs have different sound quality and most hearable it is on last two unreleased songs. The youngest songs on this LP are from 1995. Lyrics are about John Major´s government which is not so good for working men (Off With Their Heads), songs about cult (Kids on the Move, Oi!´s Alive, We Are the Army), working class (Working Class Man), unexpected future (1993) or British pride (The Lion Still Roars). Mostly i tis in middle rhythm and the music is not so hard. So booklet----perfect. A4 format. 12 pages full of band story, interview, lyrics, posters, discography and many photos plus two postcards. Cover is done in Union Jack version (350 copies) or St. George´s flag (150 copies). If you like the bands from early 90´s like Blank Generation, Boisterous or Another Man´s Poison and you haven´t got above mentioned compilations where Pressure 28 has their songs, this compilation is straight for you.
