Fuck World Trade (reissue)Fat Wreck Chords
***BACK IN STOCK!!! LEFTOVER CRACK are a rare band in that they managed to master a genre of music and eventually completely redefine it. Born out of the ashes of ska/punk/crust legends CHOKING VICTIM, Leftover Crack elevated the level of expectation and popularity of the genre. Infusing elements of metal, hardcore, classical, and even some as yet undefined ingredients, LOC created a truly unique sound which they dubbed “squat-core”. Coupled with fiercely overt/controversial political and socio-economic messages and it became the recipe for some of the most volatile material the punk genre has seen in a long time. Originally released in 2004, their second album Fuck World Trade is viewed as LOC’s hallmark release. Built on the foundation of high-speed ska and thrash punk, Fuck World Trade saw the band take a freer approach both musically and lyrically, including longer songs, more varied details, and contributions from members of ANTI-FLAG, THE DWARVES, and WORLD/INFERNO FRIENDSHIP SOCIETY. Of course, the band’s anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-capitalist, and anarcho-communist message is on full display as well. Over 10 years after its release, Fuck World Trade still stands as genre defining album in both musical content and message. To mark the anniversary of the album Fat will be releasing a deluxe reissue. The reissue includes five previously unreleased bonus tracks (all originally from the Fuck World Trade session), enhanced artwork, and gatefold double-vinyl version.
