REVIEWS

ACTION SEDITION are back again (after their first 8 song demo)! This 7″ record has two of their excellent songs which are in the vein of all French and Canadian redskins bands. The song “Histoire D’un Printemps” has an official video that you can see on Youtube. ACTION SEDITION sound much better than on their demo. All you antifas are going to want to hear more of this music! From Bristol comes SPANNER, with a militant ska punk sound. Two songs that remind me of that old UK anarchopunk sound, like ZOUNDS, SUBHUMANS, etc. I love this band and I wanna hear more music from these guys.

Regresaron! Después de un demo de 8 canciones. Llegan con un 7” que tiene 2 excelentes canciones en las venas de todas las bandas redskins, canadienses y francesas. . La canción Histoire d’un printemps tiene un video oficial en youtube. AS tiene un mejor sonido que su demo. Vas a pedir más canciones antifas de esta banda. Desde Bristol, SPANNER con su ska punk. 2 canciones que me recuerdan a ese sonido anarcopunk de principios de los 80tas de Inglaterra, ZOUNDS, SUBHUMANS, etc. Gran banda.

"ACTION SEDITION / SPANNER - HISTORY LESSONS: SPLIT 7” EP
ACTION SEDITION up first with two tracks of heavy duty French Oi! Thick and heavy vocals that’d sit nicely halfway down side two of Chaos En France. Next is SPANNER from Bristol playing their crustie ska-punk with occasional CHUMBAWAMBA horns from a very anti-fascist perspective. You can just imagine undulating hordes of skank‘n’stank ‘punx’ in boggy fields jigging to this in their ripped waffle jumpers with arms stretched to their knees, heads down, dreads-a-whippin’." (Artcore Zine)

Track Name: Action Sedition - Histoire D'Un Printemps
New measures of austerity For the well-being of the economy This time it’s the university Whose price the state wants to increase As soon as the increase is announced A social movement comes to life Struggling for free tuition Education does not have a price A spring unlike any other is on the horizon We will fight until they back down Sides are quickly drawn As the media, cops, and bosses Side with the government Against the people At night, confrontations In the morning, injunctions The youth are rising We will not ask for forgiveness From Victoriaville to the streets of Montreal Fear changes sides, the police flee Who would have believed that after that spring People would vote like fools? Believing that change could finally come Through an election…
Track Name: Action Sedition - Classe Contre Classe
Class against class We will always fight on Class against class We will never back down

The local factory is shutting down Hundreds of jobs are lost once again Anger is building inside of us Families find themselves on the streets

Between killing, drinking or shouting I’ve decided to fight for my dignity They’ve humiliated my class Time for revenge has finally arrived

CHORUS

Welfare is not enough Landlords won’t accept credit It’s a return to underemployment Precariousness enriches them

Unions do nothing Infected with bureaucracy The power of the bosses spreads The more we scratch, the more rot we find
Track Name: Spanner - Always Antifascist
It’s a tired old story when times are harsh the fascists and racists go on the march with twisted faces and ideas misplaced anger, ignorance and fear They go for easy targets and never aim high Believing all the bullshit and swallowing all the lies yeah they can shout loud but they’ve nothing to say just the same old bigotry that never goes away Repackaged as radical, new and improved but so many times it’s been proved they’ve got nothing to offer but division and hate and power and strength to the nation state

Raised fists antifascists help the fightback spread and the only good fascist is one that is dead Militants in resistance we know our enemies and we know that our best weapon is solidarity

Police and fascists march side by side it’s always been the way, it can’t be denied waving vinyl7_foldoverbatons or St George crosses they’re working for the rich and the same bosses So there’s plenty of violence to protect “Free speech” for the fascist scum and the filth they preach their “right to protest” is always ensured while antifascists feel the force of the law

Liberals without a clue trying to tell “the movement” what to do follow the leaders from a to b and let’s pretend we got unity Stirring speeches keep people still as designated protest pens are filled miles from the fascists behind police rails playing it safe and doomed to fail

We know that fighting fascism means sometimes we have to fight not pacified, dead end demos where everything is so polite It’s not about being macho, elite or supertough but a look at the history of fascism should tell us enough It’s confidence and strength will grow if it is unopposed so with barricades and whatever it takes we’ll make sure the road is closed Wherever they start we have to stop them to make sure they have no chance there’s many ways to beat the fascists and push back their advance We’ll never accept the rise of the right or fascists on our streets and we won’t follow leaders on the long road to defeat In memory of fallen comrades we will never forget nor do we forgive so our rage is fueled to destroy the fascist threat
Track Name: Spanner - Impossible
The world we want to live in is too far away The bad times are here to stay All hope is gone and there’s nothing we can do Apathy is everywhere the rebels are too few No one is listening to the screams and shouts We’re powerless and we can’t break out Revolution was just a futile dream The struggle’s been lost or so it seems

But the only struggle that is lost is the one that’s never fought so lift your head up high and fight to win Demand the impossible with a new world in our hearts Stay solid never give in

Everything has a price and it’s all doomed to be used, exploited and consumed A devastated planet pushed over the brink Millions of species made extinct So much life annihilated by politics Toxic air and chemicals keep us sick Desperate people, ruined lives everywhere Suffering’s so normal that no one cares Children learn early on that life is cruel Violence and domination are what rules We’ll never know peace or freedom or a life not sold We’re defeated, beaten, numb and so controlled

There’s many of us having a go and living our lives against the flow Remember that you are not alone and nothing here is set in stone Recognize our struggles are all linked and things can change faster than you think Victories and struggle can be won The impossible can be done
