A free online comp released by Brandon from Fighting 84. Thanks to Brandon and all the bands for appearing and giving us free songs.
First thing of i noticed some of the songs where in M4a-files instead of MP3 but this shouldnt pose a problem if you know your way around a computer. Either download the free VLC Media Player or use a converterprogram (tons of them out there).
As much as i loved last years free comp This is our culture this one is a huge step up. Not only are the bands and the songs performed by them better but there are more of them to. This record is a RAC/Oi! compilation and packs all the drama that one would think comes with that. First response i saw on another site was someone shouting about 99 bottles not being racist..... they are not and i dont see why they should be because they perform on a scenecomp with a band that might be (or not). I could have understood the complaints if the record costed money and the money went to funding the rise of the third reich but this is not the situation here. The scene is diverse and so should a comp be so thanks again Brandon.
Since all bands appear free of charge i wont complain but simply highlight the better sides of the album and i guess i'll start with the new band (atleast to me) Bronco army from Brazil. I first heard them on the 3-way split they did with Pridefull & Shaven heads called For the love of rock n oi earlier this year, the vocals and their delivery where simple and genious on the split and the same goes for their skinpride anthem Never gonna die. Top fucking song to open the album with.
Biggest surprise on the comp where Youngblood. Their Final war album from 1989 might be far from "politically ok" but it sure as counts as a US classic if you ask me. Their later albums has all been dipped in some sort of "racial lucky-13" pot and i simply cant stand them any more. This new version of an old Barrom heroes song makes me interested again. The singer seems to be on point again and i am loving the ballad feeling, way better than the aucostic version they had before.
Second us RAC band on on the comp is the singer from Final war's new project Evil inside. Even if you ignore Final war's politics they have always been a mediocre band but one thing they have had going for them is their singer. This new (sounds less political to me atleast) band sounds great and makes me want to hear more.
Fighting 405 might sound like a UK band but are actually from America. I had completly missed this band and noticed they even released a CD back in 2009. Ordered it and will review it in the future. Top song, top band.
First strike, Venganza tatuada and Combate 49 represent the eastcoast and deliver superb brickwall Oi!.
Great fucking comp and way better than most records you would have to pay actual money for. Only problem i can find with it is the lack of Fighting 84 on the playlist and Major disappointments choice of song (the only crappy song from their latest EP)
