The latest reviews:


On File - The Real Mc Oi!

Common People Records - LP -


1170_of_trmo.jpgRe-edition of one of the greatest and true album from little bit underrated Scottish band. Originally it was released in 2001 on Screwed Up Records (CD and LP), then came CD re-edition in 2006 and now came LP re-edition limited to 500 copies (400 black and 100 yellow with poster). LP contains one bonus song called The 1990´s way which you may know from compilation Punks, Skins and Herberts vol. 4. We really love this album with our crew back in those times and after the Breaking Rules release we organized gig of On File here and it was huge success (check the videos on youtube On File Vyškov) and I think that Scots like it also – the first day in Prague and second one in Vyškov. Hedgy also had some speech on The Riot release. I have really strong memories on that album for example the first song which we play loud in the pub was kept in stereo around about for three seconds and then waiter stop it :). Or We Are All the Same when band sings about going in van many miles to see the band. We go to This is Belgium in 2009 1000 km without having a place to sleep and after the gig we went back to CZ :). So I reallylove the album, just check the songs Let the Lager Decide, 14 Up, Down the Bingo, Another Day in Paradise from single or slower pieces like Fight in the Dark, We Are the Same, Rather do the Time (with great refrain) or Left it All Behind. This album was recorded in three pieces line up – Hedgy used to sing and play guitar, on Breaking Rules he just sings. Guitar has light booster and do not expect some twenty minute solos but there are some like at the beginning of Tired of Working. Second side of the cover is different then on original LP, inside are lyrics plus many photos. Yes On File are not virutosos and yes it not the best skinhead band in the universe but if ANY band can characterize my teenage years and the first decade of 21st century, it will be On File. And that´s why I really love this album.

Zóna A - Dneska idem von

Inflagranti Records - EP -


1169_zonaEP.jpgAfter long years an EP from Slovak punk rock legend Zona A is out, it contains 3 songs and it is limited to 500 copies (150 black, 150 clear and 250 purple). Interesting fact is that first song Dneska idem von (Today I´m Going Out) is recorded with different people on bass and drums then two others which you may find out on B side – Já už nebudem píť (I Will Not Drink Anymore) and Prečo ode mňa každý pítá prachy (Why Still Somebody Asking Me For Money). Song titles are quite clear about the content so the day you will leave jail and you will taste freedom again (cover is done according to this topic), consequences of drinking, moral hangover and fights with partner and the last one is about paying the bills for whole month. First song is nice 77 punkrock with solos (there is also second guitarist as a guest) spiced with French horn, second one is similar with fine melody in refrain and the last one is the hardest song (due to guitars) but it is still in Zona standard. Inside is no paper with lyrics and on the back side of the cover are photos of the offenders who did thi EP. You can order it straight on http://www.inflagrantirecords.sk/ for 9 Euros.
