RESISTANCE 77: Songs for a Nanny State: CD

Another strong album from these guys, with tons of poppy punk stuff that would make Cocksparrer fans giddy and even a couple of speedier tunes this time out. Although at one point they sing “keep your petty politics away from me,” they aren’t afraid to tackle serious subjects, like the degradation of their neighborhoods (saying that “We need to lock the parents up/if they don’t know how to raise their kids”) and the ulterior motives of celebrities who put on benefits for the world’s poor. All in all an interesting, strong release.
