INCISIONS / PIZZA TRAMP: Do You Know Who You Look Like: Split 7”

May 28, 2020

Each of these bands from the U.K. offer up a pair of songs drenched with anger and a foot to the floor approach that creates a sense of urgency from start to finish. Both are fixtures on the live scene, although I’ve unfortunately yet to see either. I can only imagine that their gigs are riotous occasions. The standout track is Pizza Tramp’s “Knighthoods Are for Cunts,” an acerbic attack on the way honors are bestowed on people in the U.K., many of whom receive them for toadying to Prime Ministers. It’s an abhorrent and outdated practice, one which serves to continue the class divide. Put this single on your wants list. –Rich Cocksedge (TNS, [email protected],
