Harrington Saints - Machine guns and molotovs 7'' (2010)
01. Machine guns and molotovs
02. Bullet proof
03. No justice
Released by Longshot Music in 2010.
Thye most over-rated American Oi!-band yet again releases a canducoated streetpunk release filled with garbage lyrics and garbage choruses made for the kids in two tone checkered wristbands and 4 inches thick braces. One might question Longshot's thoughts as they simply spew out releases by this band and Old Firm Casuals right next to proper good bands like Noi!se. But since no band releasing EP's through Longshot actually gets payed by Longshot for the music i guess beggars cant be choosers.
First song out is actually quite good in it's radio-punk ways and the chorus works as it should but after a couple of listens i start to ask the same questions as i ask most revolutionary band, namely what's their solution to the thing they are fighting? Judging from the lyrics Harrington Saints have just purchased automatic firearms and have started a revolution from their state (Machine guns and molotovs), the police also owns automatic weapons and are trying to kill Harrington Saints for their views but even though the police can kill Harrington Saints they can't kill their beliefs (Bullet Proof). Exactly what are these strong beliefs that forces the band to go underground and join militias in guerilla warfare? If anyone has an answer to this i would love to hear it since it might make me enjoy this mediocre album a little bit more. Am i biassed? Yes, but simple because this shitty band gets to squirt these records out left and right while proper good bands have to beg a guy in Germany to release 100 copies that later get ignored by the majority of "fans" because their appretiation of the music ends at what newsletter gets sent to their email. I think i need to calm the fuck down now and crack my first weekend-beer....
