Liberty The People Who Care are Angry LP

Missed this when it came out, but it’s well worth listing now. Very much in the English “peace punk” tradition, there are CRASS–like rants set to driving simple punk, poetic conversations and folky interludes a la CHUMBA. Well done.

Liberty Our Voice is Tomorrow’s Hope! EP

LIBERTY has the benefit of political commitment abetted by an original approach to mid-tempo British punk. Great guitar riffs abound on two of the four numbers here, and the overall sound is rough, gruff, powerful, and uncompromising. Good solid release.
