M.D.C. / ANTIDON’TS, THE: Split: 7”

Aug 02, 2017

The cover depicts a cartoon Trump giving a Nazi salute whilst dressed like Hitler so it’s easy to get an idea of what this split will offer. M.D.C. should need no introduction and is renowned for being anti-authority, so it’s good to hear “No Trump, No K.K.K., No Fascist U.S.A.,” obviously an updated version of one of its most memorable songs. Its next offering is a reworking of “Big River,” a Johnny Cash cover, previously released by the band in 1993. The Antidon’ts are the snotty upstarts here yet carry on with a similar theme via “Make America Think Again,” a simple yet effective title, and “A Cold Day in Heck.” It’s good to see punk rock is still fighting back in these dark days. –Rich Cocksedge (Swamp Cabbage, [email protected], swampcabbagerecords.com)
