NEW AGE 7"/12"
01. New Age
Label: Future Records
The best thing about this new Blitz 45 is that it will piss off the more narrow-minded Oi-sters. It really breaks the standard "skunk" mold with a schizoid musical approach combining New Order (squeaky clean production, a dance-oriented beat, a tinkling piano) and Gary Glitter (superheavy drums and repetitive sing-along choruses) influences. I long for the crunching guitars of their All Out Attack EP, but I'm thankful that they're not just recycling their more derivative recent material.
