***As a staple of the punk scene, ALL of the Subhumans records are in high demand, and this long overdue repress of their 2007 album couldn’t have come at a better time. Subhumans are one of the most influential bands from the UK Anarcho-Punk scene of the 80's, filed right alongside Crass and Conflict, and just as relevant today as they were during the darkest days of Thatcher's Britain. Take your choice in how to label them—Punk, UK82, Crusty, etc.—therein lies the attraction and consequent reason for their popularity, the band epitomizes non-conformity and connects with people in many different scenes. When Subhumans self-released this album in 2007 they hadn’t recorded new material in many years, and the response of many was that they sounded angrier than ever. They delivered thirteen songs that strived to find solutions for the world's problems and delivered them with fury and passion. Sadly, this album’s topics haven’t lost any of their relevance in the years since its release - the atrocities of war and violence, the pressure on teenage girls to be thin, and the rise of the big box stores at the expense of independent businesses continue to be subjects that punks are all still speaking out against.
