Proletariat Punch, Signs of Civilisation, CD

Proletariat Punch sent us a cassette tape which we thought was amusing then we listened to it and thought "wow, is this a gem from the late 1980's UK anarcho scene that lay forgotten under someones bed?"

More details


£3.00

25 tracks that range from US political hardcore like Nausea to UK dup punk a la Culture Shock. Several tracks could be taken direct form seminal anarcho punk Lp's such a No Love Lost by Omega Tribe, or Pictures of Starving Children by Chumbawamba or indeed Crucifucks (without the demented voice), MDC or Feederz. This took us along time to put together but its well worth the wait.

Probably the best thing we've done in a long time!

PROLETARIAT PUNCH - SIGNS OF CIVILIZATION

It’s Punk, Political, Pissed off, Poetic, Proletariat and Punchy and probably a lot more words beginning with P. Sounding like any number of UK bands from the mid eighties Proletariat Punch aren’t going to win any prizes for most original newcomer at some glitzy music bash but I wouldn’t be at all surprised to find them outside protesting against said event. This is DIY anarcho punk as it used to be and it would be more fitting if I wrote this review on a knackered old type writer for a zine printed on that stuff you used to get in the ol days, you know! What was it called? Ahh yes! Paper!

Anyway enough of my nostalgia filled rambling. This is a great CD from a band that are obviously heavily influenced by eighties anarcho but are by no means living in the past. Proletariat Punch give a well deserved smack in the chops to those that deserve it (you know, the State, coppers, animal abusers and all the other arseholes we’re never going to stop hating) with brilliantly crafted rhyming lyrics delivered by a vocalist who sounds a bit like Nick Blinko backed up by tunes that sound like a mixture of Icons of Filth, Antisect, Ripcord and a whole mixtape you got through the post of others.

Packaged in a printed brown envelope made out of that old fashioned paper stuff comes a lyric booklet and a big sticker, cut n paste artwork and stencilling, none of that new fangled Photoshop nonsense and a nifty bit of recycling when it comes to the CD wallet. ‘Signs of Civilization’ is made up of two tape releases and a CD single + an additional six tracks for this CD. All in all 25 tracks of excellent Anarcho Punk by a band I’d never heard before and from asking around it would seem not many people I know have either, which is a shame because Proletariat Punch have got a lot to say and say it with passion, sincerity and anger.
