the rebel spell – hopeless – breathe – exd session

Back on November 11, 2014, The Rebel Spell recorded an interview and live session with Equalizing X Distort radio. Take a run through the entries below and you’ll find a video from that live session as well as the interview. Here’s a couple of tracks from the live session….

Hopeless

There is a deep deadly sadness growing inside of me it hurts to be here but I can’t leave
And if I found a way to walk away, well where then what would I be?
I’d be useless to you and worse to me and I don’t get any better on self-pity
I don’t get anything else just this bit of time so I, I, I, I

I’d like to help you up, I’ve got power to spare
Don’t believe for a second that there’s no one else there
I’ve got enough for you even in the depths of my despair
I will help you up, I’ve got power to spare

I feel the same way towards everything from a tiny worm to a leaning tree
I love the underdog every time I’m not sure why or what it means
Inequities in power compel me to try and overwhelming odds are when I thrive
I’m not happy just on my game and one more time I’ll try to explain

Breathe

We’ve heard a billion words about building and beginning, my biggest interest now is dismantle and diminish
The train of construction has had its time, if this is where it goes let’s end this line.
Too many people walking around half dead trapped in the dream of growth, a slow smoky death
We’ve progressed this place into a dying grey mess, before it’s too late draw in a last breath

Breathe! Are you living? My heart beats so hard it may tear itself right outta my chest.
Breathe and listen, if you hear your heart moving, well then you’ll know you’ve just cheated death

Living means retreating to things that work for us, not being dragged along through this mechanized dusk
Layers and layers of rules and constructs compound to make a pile of what?
A great arms race against real interaction and insidious self-loathing for our own imperfections
Accept this substitution for life or slow down, look around, stand up and fill your lungs

Breathe! Are you there? Can we do this? I’m waiting.
Breathe, look alive, pay attention, keep moving
It never gets easy unless you give up and if you do you won’t know because there is nothing after death

spanner – the mivart sessions – coming soon

We’re excited to announce that, in conjunction with Pumpkin Records and Riot Ska Records, we’ll be releasing something new from our favourite militant ska punks, Spanner!

The release is called “The Mivart Sessions” and it’s 12 tracks of (as the band describes it) “…bodgy and barely mixed live recordings…”

We think they’re being a bit modest…give the track below a listen and we think you’ll agree it sounds just fine!

Border Regime

Thousands flee in desperation, their home’s a war-torn hell
Where children play at soldiers to the sound of booming shells
For one young woman who’s grown up fast surrounded by the guns
In the back of a truck to another land, she’s with the lucky ones
But at the end of her long journey, after so much pain
There’s no friendly faces waiting as she’s forcibly detained

Coz the system needs her in the right place, caught in the poverty trap
For the good of the nation, for the sake of lines on maps
And money moves so much further and faster in the 21st century
But the borders get more solid when you’re a refugee

Back home the streets are no go zones where snipers open fire
And here she’s going nowhere, hemmed in by razor wire
They say she’ll be sent back soon to the place where she comes from
Cell door slams shut as she wonders what it is that she’s done wrong
If only they could see the ruins of the place from where she came
They’d probably send her back there just the fucking same

Coz the system needs her in the right place, caught in the poverty trap
For the good of the nation, for the sake of lines on maps
And money moves so much further and faster in the 21st century
But the borders get more solid when you’re a refugee

One of the few who made it through is struggling to stay sane
It’s a tonne of sweat just to survive and he’s got no food again
He cane in search of a better life but all he found was fear
Harassed by the cops, abused by the news coz they don’t like gypsies here
All those nights he lay awake dreaming of safer shores
Now he can’t sleep coz the fascists are banging at the door
And the racist scum get all the help they need from the government’s big scheme

Refugees declared the enemy by the border regime

the strike (2015)

Wow, the things you see/hear in Hamilton, Ontario Canada on a Saturday night!!

Fergus ( bass/vocals: The Strike, Emergency!), Peter ‘Lucky’ Lambert (drums: 63 Munroe, The Angelic Upstarts, The Trojans) and Crash (guitar/vocals: Slander, The Steeltown Spoilers, Hammerboiz, Rezentments) hammering out some Strike and Emergency! tunes…

the brat attack – “…and they called us savages’

bratattackottawa1

Back in 2009 Rebel Time Records released “Those Who Sow Sorrow Shall Reap Rage” by Canuck political punk outfit The Brat Attack. Just a rager of a record!

Just this month, the band has self-released a new (equally raging) album entitled “…And They Called Us Savages.”  According to singer/guitarist/lyricist Davey Brat the album is a reflection on and critique of Canada’s oppression of indigenous peoples and includes a lot of D.I.Y anarcho punk stories.

The album is available as a download on Bandcamp and you can get hardcopies from the band.

Here’s a brand-new video for the song “When All You Sing About Is Politics Sometimes You Gotta Have Fun”!

And, the good folks at Witch Police just interviewed Davey…

Dave Zegarac frontman for long-running political punks The Brat Attack, joins Sam on the line from Ottawa for this episode. The Brats have a new lineup and a new album, …And They Called Us Savages, which focuses on Canada’s relationship to its indigenous people along with the usual anarchist/animal rights/anti-racist content. Dave talks about his experiences (as a native dude) with racism, punk rock longevity and more!

Check the entry below for more on Section 4!

FUCK YOU

Fuck you! You racist shit, I don’t need your point of view I’ve had enough of it. Your backwards way of thinking your misconceived thoughts, you’re the fuckin’ problem in your narrow minded world. You single out an entire race, you judge them when it’s not your place. We need to fuckin’ educate a new generation ‘cos fear breeds hate.

Fuck your racist shit, There’s no place left for it.
We need to fight these fascists down for once and all!

Oi Oi Oi

Refugees and immigrants, what’s your fuckin’ problem with…
they’re only wanting to make a better life, for their families, is that a crime? You think they don’t deserve a chance, well I think you’re just ignorant. You’re no better than anyone else and if you can’t see that then you fuckin’ need help!

You hide behind your wall of hate, any excuse to discriminate.
blame anyone else for your problems, well being a bigot won’t fuckin solve them. Stereotypes and political views are the tools that you use, to hide the fact set in stone, you’re a racist piece of fucking scum.

Fuck your racist shit, There’s no place left for it.
We need to beat these fascists down for once and all!

Oi Oi Oi

So take a stand, get off the fence, let these boneheads know we’ve no tolerance. Keep our scene anti-fascist and re-claim Oi for the working classes!

Here’s the song ‘Tear Down Your Fucking Posters’…

Why would ya want to be a politician? A come on tell me now tell me now! Do ya really think that you could make a difference? ‘Cos we’ve seen it all before. They only thing they’ll change is themselves, they can’t be trusted. No Ya can’t count on a politician.

Seen them in the news now its no surprise,
Another politicians coming telling more lies,
And we don’t want to hear them anymore.

It won’t take long for their promises to be broken, it won’t be long now ’till all their lies are forgotten. The only one they help is themselves, they can’t be trusted. No Ya can’t count on the politician.

Seen them in the news now its no surprise,
Another politicians been scandalised,
And we don’t want to see them anymore.

No one can stand alone, no ya can’t bring down the system on your own, ya don’t believe me now. When are we all a gonna agree we need a change to come? And that’s not easy so until we all agree people are sufferin’ needlessly .

and so another campaign, and another more lies, another politician we’re a gonna despise. We don’t wanna hear them, we don’t wanna see them now ya know, we don’t want no politicians no more.

No more politicians no more politricks
I’m not ever gonna vote for you no… ‘cos guilty politicians got no rhythm

And, here’s another couple of track, courtesy of the band’s Bandcamp page!
