LAST RESORT, THE: Resurrection: CD

Aug 25, 2006

With this, Last Resort wins the trophy for “old oi band that manages to still sound like an oi band.” This sounds like it could’ve easily come out in 1981, and that’s actually a good thing ’cause everything here is rife with requisite anger and rage, a crucial ingredient to this strain of oi that so many contemporary bands lack. Four new tunes start things off, followed by some reworkings of older tunes like “Violence on Our Minds” as well as some 4-Skins, Warzone, and Agnostic Front covers. All in all, a worthwhile listen, although more new original material would’ve been nice.
