L’Attentat

Reviews

L’Attentat Made in GDR LP

The first East German punk band to release vinyl, and decent it is. Much of the material is typically German older-style punk, while there are a few thrashers as well. Lyrics are translated into four languages and give a good insight into life in East Berlin, showing differences and similarities. A brave band.

L’Attentat King of the Neighbourhood LP

I liked their single a whole lot, especially the way it mixed the hoodoo-based blues into a hybrid of both the CRAMPS and the BLASTERS. And even though all the songs here are the same straight-up bullshit, I get the feeling this sound is better on a 7”, where on the LP it seems just to go on too long.
