Backslide – Terror Age – New LP
damaged creased up sleeve.
German street punk. Mostly sung in English. Solid set. Import.
Translated from German review: I remember exactly when I saw and heard Backslide for the first time. The guys brought down the audience (and especially me!) with their melodic street punk anthems. Honest, UK 82 influenced sound in its hottest form. "Tell Me Lies", "Burn Your Flag", or (the characteristically brilliant refreain) "Terror Age" - all meaningful and self-explanatory titles. Then one of the absolute highlights, namely "Please Die Tonight". what the guys put together for a song is indescribable. No, can't find any words now, please listen. . A little bit Romanic s then in "Poison Girl": The seemingly great love is exposed as an imagination ... hach ... how beautiful ... hehehe, I like it! The only German-language song can be found at the very end: “Beginning from the end” is generally about a world in which surveillance, constant control and suppressed protests are no longer delusions, but rather sad reality. This record really caught my eye - innovative melodies and an ingenious “let's not get it down” atmosphere. Duty fabric!
