PARTISANS, THE: Self-titled: CD

Here’s another band I knew only from assorted compilations and never really thought much of, but I gotta say, this was some pretty good stuff. Fairly political English punk that thrashes along quite nicely and has enough attitude to appeal to cactus heads and baldies alike. This is a reissue of their first album, with assorted singles tracks tacked on and some really good liner notes to give you an idea where these guys and girl were coming from. All in all, a great introduction to a band I now wish I’d paid more attention prior to.
