mossin nagant – new cd – distro

mossingnagantpromoposterbigMossin Nagant are an Oi band from Eusak Herria (Basque country) in Spain. Back in 2005 they put out a great CD called “Redskin Sounds From Euskal Herria” and they’ve just finally released an excellent new self-titled 9-song CD on Rusty Knife Records (antifa label out of France).

The band plays melodic and miltant RASH-inspired streetpunk and songs deal with topics such as anti-fascism, anti-capitalism, class pride and class struggle.

Other than than, well, don’t really know much about the band! Maybe we’ll try and do an interview with them. ( Actually, just talked to the band, and we’ll do up a small interview with them…stay tuned…. )

We’re getting a very very limited number of the new CD for distro here in North America. The discs are on their to us as we speak, so, if you would like a copy, please get in touch!

Here’s a couple of tracks from the new album….

MOSSIN NAGANT

Hay una vieja historia que quieren olvidar
Con el paso de los anos no han podido ocultar
Es algo simpre incomodo que puede rescuitar
Seguro que algun dia escucharemos su final

Azote del fascista pesadilla del burgues
Esencia de la clase sentimiento de unidad
Orgullo por los nuestros razon para luchar
Orgullo por los nuestros razon para luchar!!
Que vuelvan a temernos que empiecen a temblar
Destruyamos con hechos su sensaction de seguridad
Es algo necesario es un deber moral
Podemos ser nosotros quien escriba su final

Est: Eses es el camino!! luch contra el capital
Pueblo organizado!! una rebelion social
El proletariado la vanguardia tomara
La bandera roja volvera a ondear!!

RED SKINS

Juventud roja, ruda y rebelde, heredera de la cultura de la calle
Orgullosa de su origen multiracial, del sentimiento obrero y de su ideologia
Mantente firme! Siempre ante el enemigo. Mantente Lejos! De todas sus mentiras
Recuerda siempre cual es tu lugar. En que lado te encuentras
Cuando hay que luchar

Libertad! Igualdad! Solidaridad!

Caras sucias de la classe obrera. Luchador temerarios de las calles oscuras
Persiguen el camino hacia la justicia. Encuentran en su barrio las miseria del mundo
Batalla local!! El objetivo es global. Hay una guerra y un historia paraganar
Unidos por el mundo no nos podran parar
Nuestra ultima victoria sera vuestra final

interview with section 4

Here’s a nice interview with our very own Section 4, done up by the fine folks at Redstar73:

section4group


Redstar73 Blog: Please can you introduce your band. When was it started? What about your name?

Section 4: Howaya! We’re Section 4 from Ballina, Co. Mayo, Ireland – Paul (guitar/vocals), Conor, (Drums/vocals), Bob (Bass/vocals). We got together in 2007 with the intention of being a straight up Oi! Band, but before long other influences, especially Reggae and Ska, came into our sound. The name is taken from Section 4 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act under which 2 of us, together with some friends of ours, were arrested one night; the story of that night forms the lyrics to the song “Night In the Cells” off our first album. Needless to say drink was taken…

Redstar73 Blog: You have just released your new album. Tell us more about it.
This album is a little different to our first one in that there’s a little more of the ska and reggae influence compared to tthe first one. Also theres a lot of extra instruments overdubbed here and there – organ, sax, trumpet, acoustic guitar, bodhran…we had quite a few of our mates guesting on it, cheers to all of them! This time around we’ve had a few labels help us out with the release; Jobsworth (Ireland), Rebeltime (Canada) and Infiltrate The System (England). That’ll will help with the promotion and distribution for which we’re very grateful.Due to the lenght of time it took us to get all the overdubbing and mixing done, we are almost ready to go and record again, so watch this space!

Redstar73 Blog: How important is for you the DIY idea and politics?
The DIY idea is great in a lot of ways but I’m not absolutist about it. The sense of community in the scene, the mutual aid, total control over every aspect of your band – all wonderful but it is very hard for DIY bands to survive. We all have to eat somehow so if you are making no money on music you have to work other jobs etc which means you have less time to do music. For every DIY band that can keep going for years there are a thousand great bands who broke up because they couldnt afford what is essentially a very expensive hobby. I would never change one word or one note of a song for money but if a label wanted to give us money to tour, record etc without setting any conditions I’d have no problem with it personally. Not that that’s likely to happen! As for politics, that word means different things to different people. It doesn’t have to mean parties and elections; politics is your values, what kind of a society you want to live in, and what you do to bring about that society. The songs we have about normal working class life, being skint, losing your job etc are just as political as the ones critisising the establishment. As for me, I’m a class struggle anarchist – real change will only come about from those of us on the bottom taking control.Politics is very important, but having the craic is important too! Also,you don’t get through to people by lecturing them;Im a big believer in the old Oi! slogan “having a laugh and having your say”. One last point: we are a 100% antiracist, antifascist band and have zero tolerance for that bullshit or people who take a soft line on it. Thankfully we don’t have to worry about dodgy bands/promoters in the Irish scene but we’re aware of the problem elsewhere.

Redstar73 Blog: What’s up next for the Section 4?
We’re very proud to be playing the Keep The Faith festival in Belfast this May alongside a shitload of great bands. We’re hoping to get a tour of Ireland in during the summer to promote the new album, having already got a few English dates in this year with our German buddies Robinson Krause (hallo lads!).A new recording is on the cards but we’re still debating whether to do an EP/split release or go straight for another full lenght album.

Redstar73 Blog: Last words
Last year we lost our friend and legend of the punk scene, Colin “Riot” McQuillan, singer for Runnin Riot. You couldn’t say enough good things about the man and we will give our all in his memory when we play Belfast in May. Also this year saw the untimely death of Todd Serious,singer for the Rebel Spell, who we had the pleasure of touring with on their previous visits to Ireland. Condolences to everyone affected by the passing of these two absolute gentlemen.
Thanks for your interest in our band, keep an eye on our Facebook for updates! Oi!

the rebel spell – hopeless – breathe – exd session

UPDATE: Equalizing X Distort has now posted the entire Studio 3 Session…12 live-off-the-floor tracks from The Rebel Spell. Listen to/stream/download the tracks at the Equalizing X Distort blog or at the Equalizing X Distort archive

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…

Word is that they’ll be playing out sooner than later…

How’d they sound, you ask? They sounded fantastic! Heard some great Strike tunes like Victims, Angry Gun and Anthem for the 80s. Apparently they’ll be playing Emergency! songs as well.

Stay tuned for some live video!

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!
