Propagandhi: Potemkin City Limits album review
So, I hadn't really listened to much by these guys from Canada before. My band's drummer kept banging on about them for some time, and they're not exactly without their punk rock credentials. So when we were coming back from playing a show in Lincolnshire a few weeks ago, we put it on to keep us awake. I ended up borrowing the album because it is just that good. It starts off with a few jazz chords, really bringing you in, and then BANG! not any louder, but with the ferocity of a wounded rhino with an adrenaline shot to the arse. The first three songs take up nearly a dozen minutes of your life but by hell, youíll never want them back. With lyrics about the state of the punk rock scene, social inequality and global poverty, Propagandhi arenít singing about anything new, but they do it with fresh eyes. FFO Unpretentious math-core, skate-punk, Fat Wreck Chords.
