GULAG BEACH: Potato Mash Bash: LP

May 20, 2019

What immediately struck me about this album was the cover featuring three people. One was wielding a baseball bat, another was holding a flag, whilst the third had a giant potato masher in hand. Not something I’ve come across before and obviously a nod to the title of the record, whatever that means. This is good, snotty punk rock from Berlin which has a boisterous and melodic street punk vibe, resulting in quite a rollicking album. Given how bands like Amoebas and Sharp Objects came to mind whilst listening to this, Gulag Beach would sit well within the Modern Action Records roster. –Rich Cocksedge (Rockstar, [email protected], rockstarrecords / Manic Attack,
