Subhumans ‎– "Demolition War Parts I-III" (Bluurg Tapes ‎– BLUURG 7) 1981



Straight outta the pastoral countryside of darkest Wiltshire,where life is jolly difficult, came The Subhumans. They were angry about War, Animal Rights, and Politicians. Fair enough, but after twenty -odd songs about these subjects one ends up craving for a bloody Love Song.
At least a quieter moment,or some space.
Sound wise they inhabit that hinterland between Zounds and Crass.Fuzzier than Zounds, but more melodic than Crass.
I Like some of the song titles anyway, like "It's Gonna Get Worse" and it's not ironic that "Mickey Mouse is Dead" preceeds a peon to "Sid".Yes that 'Sid, the one whose face launched a thousand leather Jackets.

We don't use terms like "My Music" on here....only Our Music.....even using the word 'Music' is controversial in most cases.
Also unsanctioned advertising is frowned upon.But as you've amused me your comment can stay.
