Album: WE… ARE DOOMED
Released: 15 January 2021
Turn Up The Volume says: The rap and roll venom of Rage Against The Machine,
the fuck-you-hypocrites grimness of Black Flag, the punky saxophone of X-Ray-Spex,
the sharp poetic spit and sneer anarchy of Mark. E. Smith, the challenging spirit of an
of doom and gloom. Sounds exactly like 2020/2021, like the end of the world as we
know it, but also like an album that’s going to be on my earphones for a long time.
