REVIEWS OF THE REBEL SPELL AND THE CLASS ASSASSINS

Couple of swell new reviews! Thanks to Chuck at Absolute Underground and Steve at Street Voice…

THE REBEL SPELL – It’s A Beautiful Future
Rebel Time Records

This is the first new release from the Rebel Spell in a couple of years, and they do not disappoint, right out of the starting gate, the title track is amazing. They return with the upbeat punk, insightful leftist lyrics, and the melody we have come to love them for. The first two tracks are catchier than anything I have heard in a long time, they instantly grab you, both musically and lyrically. “It doesn’t get any safer than 10 million cops, helicopters up high, and police dogs, “ That is a prime example of the lyrical content and cleverness of this record, and one of my favourite lines I have heard in quite a while I must say. The album not only features the wonderful catchy-yet-not-too-poppy punk we have come to expect from the Rebel Spell, but it also features piano being used extensively through “It Can’t Be Just Me” and violin on “Uncontrollable”. The album even ends with a cover of a peaceful acoustic protest song by Leon Rosselson, “The World Turned Upside Down”. It is these subtle changes and nuances that help to keep the Rebel Spell’s sound progressing as they continue to deliver their increasingly important message. (Absolute Underground)

THE CLASS ASSASSINS – Treason 45

There’s some good tunes being released of late and this Class Assassins 7″ is no different. Sadly there’s only two tunes on this release but they are both guitar fuelled tunes that are catchy as fuck! These guys really know how to rock out in style! Hopefully this single should be the lead to a new album being released so please watch this space. ‘Treason’ is the lead track on this release which is a great rock n roll tune to get those air guitars out and jump about. Timeless number for sure! Not far behind is ‘Start Again’ another great tune that isn’t too far behind tune wise. Its great to see Anti-Fascist bands of this quality banging out some decent music with well written lyrics. You’re going to love The Class Assassins – I promise! 8/10 (Street Voice)
