PARTISANS, THE: Anarchy in Alkatraz / No Future Demos 80-82: LP

Three sets of demos recorded early on in the band’s existence. Bashing the head in of authority figures seems to be the message in the lyrics. Whether it’s the police, the army, or your landlord they all seem to be a bunch of bastards! The album is rounded out with some covers of the U.K. Subs, Stiff Little Fingers, The Buzzcocks, and The Sex Pistols. It is all packaged up quite nicely with an insert of interviews, pictures, and gig flyers. Worth seeking out. –Sean Koepenick (Sealed, sealedrecords2.bandcamp.com)
