Label:  Jade Tree
Format:  CD, LP
Tracks:  12
Time:  28 min.
Lyrical themes:  social issues, politics

Strike Anywhere emerged in 1999 from Richmond, VA. Vocalist Thomas Barnett (ex-Inquisition), guitarists Matt Smith and Matt Sherwood, bassist Garth Petrie (ex-Count Me Out), and drummer Eric Kane took a staunchly political and activism-minded approach to hardcore and punk traditionalism, drawing comparisons in both sound and vision to such stalwart acts as Avail and 7 Seconds. After an initial EP, Chorus of One, Strike Anywhere (named such after an old Inquisition song) joined up with Jade Tree, which issued Change Is a Sound in August 2001. Exit English followed in 2003, and the rarities collection To Live in Discontent in January 2005. Strike Anywhere hooked up with Fat Wreck Chords for their next full-length, Dead FM, released in June 2006. Tours both home and abroad followed through the next year; Sherwood amicably parted ways with the band in March 2007 to be able to settle down at home ~ Johnny Loftus

THE NASTIES

























"discipline"
Year:  2015
Country:  Canada
City: Guelph
Label:  Sudden Death
Format:  CD
Tracks:  13
Time:  28 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk Rock




















D.O.A label "Sudden Death Records" presented in 2016 the debut album of this new canadian punk rock band The Nasties. People have been bugging me to review records and give them top tens and I am like why? I don't know anything about music. I am demonic overlord, not a rock journalist! But I was persuaded to review The Nasties new album primarily because the dude that asked me is a huge GWAR fan and also my human slave Brockie totally fucked-up and was like hours late to a festival gig that dude had booked because he was in LA getting wasted and screwing whores. So after actually listening to about 30% of the album before I got distracted and wandered off I have to say it doesn't suck. Considering I don't listen to music (except when I am playing it) and really know nothing about it, I would have to say that by my standards, it's pretty fucking good. The Nasties are old-school punk rock of the with a vocalist that sounds kinda like the dude from Bad Religion, only he doesn't suck. I never liked Bad Religion and the reason why was that I hated the vocals. So why does this guy sound like that guy except a version that doesn't suck? I don't know, I am going to go have sex (*Review writen by Oderus of GWAR ).

PROPAGANDHI

































"failed States"
Year:  2016
Country: Canadda
City:  Winnipeg
Label:  Epitaph
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  12
Time:  38 min.
Lyrical themes:  anarchism, pacifism
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk         Prog Rock




























Propagandhi is nowadays a "prog punk" band formed in Winnipeg, Canada, in 1989 by guitarist Chris Hannah and drummer Jord Samolesky. The band is currently located in Winnipeg, Manitoba and completed by bassist Todd Kowalski and guitarist Sulynn Hago. While their earlier work was aligned with the skate punk and pop punk as 90s decade tradition, in later years Propagandhi records have moved towards a heavier, slowier and more technical progressive rock influenced sound. Both in their lyrics and hands on activism, the band's members champion various radical left wing causes and veganism, and have taken a vocal stance against human rights violations, sexism, racism, nationalism, homophobia, imperialism, militarism, violence, capitalism and organized religions. Celebrating three decades of life in the political and musical hinterlands, Propagandhi will release their sixth studio album, "failed States", on September 4th. This album willfully careens between brazen heavy metal tendencies, progressive rock structures and the ragged punk rock roots of Propagandhi's earlier work, further raising the lyrical and musical bar set by their critically acclaimed 2009 release, "Supporting Caste". The excellent artwork is by Canadian artist Kent Monkman and everybody can to admire more paintings of him HERE .

"supporting caste"
Year:  2009
Country:  Canada
Label:  G7 Welcoming Comite
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  12
Time:  38 min.
Lyrical themes:  anarchism, pacifism
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk         Prog Rock




























Unbelievably, it has been a full four years since ‘prairie skids' Propagandhi released their previous full-length, Potemkin City Limits. Since then the band has experienced some notable changes: recruiting David ‘Space Beaver' Guillas (ex-Giant Sons) on second guitar in 2006; announcing the closure of their own G7 Welcoming Committee record label in early 2008; and more recently, parting ways with the label that brought them to the world, Fat Wreck Chords. Transitionary times, but not a transitionary album for Propagandhi, whose latest offering, Supporting Caste, is as focused, grounded and absolutely vital as the band has ever been. Opener "Night Letters" arrives like an adrenaline-filled syringe into the heart of an overdosed junkie. Blasts of down-tuned thrash intersect a melodic lick and Kowalski screams stirring lyrics, with verses dispersed in between an insane riff that bursts from the speakers like a rabies-infected dog; meanwhile, somewhere in the world Kerry King closes his eyes in disbelief, for it was not him who wrote this riff. Title track "Supporting Caste" finds Chris Hannah contemplating the insanity of recorded history ("Because history exalts / only the pornography of force / that of murderers and psychopaths") whilst touching on issues of power and of feeling powerless, ultimately concluding with a relatively upbeat sentiment: "if you're cast on thin ice, you may as well dance." Hannah then shifts his target, expressing his disillusionment with religion and its rigid prescription to binary oppositions on "Terntium Non Datur" (Latin for, roughly, no third way) before the brilliant "Dear Coach's Corner," which explodes with a mind-bending, face-melting intro that eventually settles into an excursion towards more melodic territory, complemented by some nice picking by The Beave on second guitar, as Hannah documents his often underestimated vocal abilities whilst commenting on the idiocy of nationalism and militarism, juxtaposed with references to his beloved game, ice hockey. Kowalski returns to lead vocal duties on "This Is Your Life," his best contribution to the Propagandhi canon since "Fuck the Border," before Hannah returns to the forefront with one of the album's many highlights, "Human(e) Meat," which shoots down the paradoxical notion that it is possible to kill humanely, played out with a stunning, screaming solo. Lyrically, this theme continues on "Potemkin City Limits," with Hannah presenting an extremely poignant and touching account of animal suffering - proving here again, as he has done repeatedly over the years, that his lyrics can stand alone, and stand out, as prose on their own merit (continue to reading HERE ).
