ANTI-NOWHERE LEAGUE: The Cage: CD

Brand new full-length from England’s punk pioneers. This lineup of the band has been intact for a few years now, and the tightness shows in this recording. If straight-ahead, no-frills punk is what you crave, the band delivers. There’s even a tribute song to a certain frontman from another long running U.K. act. “God Bless Alcohol” and “The Last Cowboys” are my favorites here. Long live Animal! –Sean Koepenick (Self-released, antinowhereleague.com)
