Reviews & Opinions

PUSHEAD, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL, MARCH 1984: Skunking punk that chants, howls, and whines. In "Oppressed," a haunting bass line echoes in the foreground as a whipping guitar cry plucks distorted noise in an early GANG OF FOUR-meets-Oi fashion, a very sharp arrangement with chomping drum spatters. It's been a while since PROTEST have had a vinyl release, and with these singalongs and foot stompers, they come out sounding like a very mature SHAM 69 or COCKNEY REJECTS. An enjoyable dose of difference.
