1981: In the Dead of the Night: 7”

Nov 13, 2013

Four tracks of Finnish anarcho punk that owes much of its sound to the likes of New Model Army, Zounds, and Crass. Songs are all generally around the mid-tempo mark, with male/female vocals which are the cause of the comparison to Crass (most notably on “Think for Yourself” which is the best track on the record), whilst the music tends to have a similar sound and structure to that of early New Model Army, especially in terms of the rhythm section with hints of Zounds heard in the guitar work. Nothing spectacular but enjoyable nonetheless.
