V/A - ANTI-CAPITALISM CD (OVER IIIVP CD)
Here we have the fourth is a series of Anarcho-punk compilations. As with the previous releases, it focuses on anarcho punk bands from the 80's, mainly early 80's at that. When listening to this, the thing that stands out is how different all the bands are and the variety of sounds from start to finish. Being a casualty from that period myself, I remember most of the bands from the various records, tapes, zines I got back then - so it's a good trip down memory lane - if you are new to it all well it will give you a bit of an idea of some of the stuff that was happening back then. All recording are excellent and the whole cd has a punchy upbeat vibe to it, considering what the bands were singing. Unfortunately no lyrics are included, but there is a bio on all the bands, with a picture of each. Bands on it are: CONFLICT, LIVING LEGENDS, CRASS, ATOMIC FILTH, ANARKA AND POPPY, D&V, COLD WAR, LEGION OF PARASITES, EPILEPTICS, RUDIMENTARY PENI, TEARS OF DESTRUCTION, DANBERT NOBACON, KULTURKAMPF, DOMINANT PATRI, CRAVATS, SLAUGHTER OF THE INNOCENT, FREEBORN, CULTURE SHOCK, ANATHEMA, COMMITTEE, NIC TOCZEK, HEX and ANTI-SECT. A good CD to listen to while reading the Day The Country Died book.
