Review: Radio One

Radio One
(Disaster Records)

This group, formed from ex-members of Pushers and Bleeders, has a guitar-driven old school punk approach that recalls early GBH and The Clash. This also goes right along with the anti-establishment and direct action message of such songs such as “New World Shakedown” which would go right along with Sham 69’s “(Gonna Be A) Borstal Breakout”.

Great, tight arrangements accentuated with chorus vocals really give these songs punch. Rebellion with a purpose and radicalism that rocks carries over into other anthemic songs here, like “The Outlaw”. Before rushing out into the street, baseball bat in hand, give a good listen to this record, so you know what you are fighting for.
