SPANNER is a great militant ska-punk outfit out of Bristol, England and they’ve got a new CD/album out called “Crisis.” It’s a corker and Rebel Time Records is pleased as punch to be stocking it in our distro. We should have it in a week or so.
What is the band all about? In their bio they say:
“Our sound is a small contribution to the soundtrack to revolution and we hope to inspire both much dancing and more direct action. We play militant, ska’d up punk that’s not just for entertaining “alternative” consumers or being part of the illusion of rebellion. Punk for us has to be more than noise and more than a hairdo. We want punk and punks to be part of a community in opposition and resistance to this murderous system which leaves everything it touches damaged or dead. We know that with our creativity and determination we can make a new world, and punk is about doing it now! We’d also very much like our music to strike fear into the hearts of capitalists, cops, bosses and politicians everywhere… if only they could hear the words!”
