The Fallout – Set Us Up

The Fallout have been hard at it recording new tracks for release in 2019.  Expect an album and an ep!

Here’s a track from the upcoming album. The track is “Set Us Up” and the album will be titled “The Times Have Never Changed.”

Dead eyes with a cold blank stare
Black heart doesn’t feel or care
Driven only by market share and a need to survive
Figure heads full of shit and lies
When are we gonna realize
We don’t have any rights if we don’t organize

Set us up, set us up just to knock us down
Gotta run, gotta run run you out of town

Gotta gotta gotta gotta get rid of you
There’s only one thing left to do
Gotta gotta gotta gotta get rid of you

Profits first and people last
Take advantage of the working class
Hysteria created en masse to conquer and divide
Lapdog with authority
A governing minority
Save money through austerity so viscous and bile

Some day we’ll finally see
Damage and depravity
We’ll drag you through the streets as you beg for mercy
In the rubble and the decay
As your system fades away
We’ll rebuild the ash and clay in solidarity

And, here’s a bit of a video!

Fall Offensive 2019 – Hamilton – Thursday October 10 – Video

At the moment, words can’t express just how fantastic the past few days spent with Urban Vietcong have been … those words will come … so many people to thank … a considerable community of friends and comrades came together to make the Fall Offensive 2019 portion of Attacco Tour a success on so many levels … a truly international effort, steeped in a love for left-radical punk and politics, based on / in mutual affinity and affection, respect and regard, camaraderie and cooperation.

One of those people we have to thank is Steve from Stronger Than Ever Videos … he’s at every show, documenting the bands and the scene for posterity.

Here’s his footage from the Hamilton stop of Fall Offensive 2019 … thanks Steve … thanks Urban Vietcong, Reckless Upstarts, Barbed Wire Braces and Bring The War Home.

Steal This Show! Episode 17 / Label Spotlight On Rebel Time Records

“Music has always been a platform for political expression and social justice and that is something that I really want to try and share on the show. Punk is a genre that I’ve been listening to for the better part of my life and it has definitely encouraged me to immerse myself in community activism and really take a stand for the things I believe in.” (Eshan Merali, host “Steal This Show!”)

Steal This Show!  is a radio show  airing on Wednesday’s at 11:00 PM to 12:00 AM on Hamilton’s CFMU 93.3  (the voice of McMaster University campus and the Hamilton community).

Hosted by Eshan Merali, the show is aimed at “exploring the punk ideology inside and outside of the punk genre with some radically random music for the radical revolutionaries.”

We’d like to thank Eshan for devoting episode 17 of Steal This Show! to Rebel Time Records !

It’s 23 minutes of rebel tunes for rebel times, with songs from The Rebel Spell, Afterboltxebike, Urban Vietcong, The Fallout and lots, lots more…

You can listen to (or download) the full episode right here.

Huge thanks to Eshan and CFMU …  much obliged …

 

 

Reviews From Razorcake

Thanks to Razorcake for the swell reviews of the Afterboltxebike and Urban Vietcong cassettes!

AFTERBOLTXEBIKE: Self-titled: CS

Anti-capitalist, anti-fascist, anti-racist, and one hundred percent communist punk from Nuevo Leon, Mexico. The cover shows the band sitting in front of a table spread out with several classic punk records including Black Flag, Bad Religion, Operation Ivy, and Sick Of It All but their sound is more of the vein of street punk and at their toughest reminiscent of early Fucked Up. The lyrics are all in Spanish and are what you would expect from an anti-authoritarian band with subjects such as killing fascists, living in an exhausting working class society, and the importance of reading (“read to study, read to learn, read to liberate!”) As part of the proletariat, I identify with much of what they’re pissed about, particularly the lyrics in “No Pasaran”: “I’m sick of waking up at 4AM day after day, not to go running, not to eat, not even to watch TV… moonlighting not for fun but for necessity…” That’s me! Good stuff! –Juan Espinosa (Rebel Time)


URBAN VIETCONG: Storie Tra Bottiglie E Ciminiere: CS

Political punk from Italy performed in a mid-tempo pace of the street punk and oi variety. “Drunken Sailor” definitely has a Dropkick Murphys vibe. All the lyrics are in Italian and I know very little of it (“stronzo,” “cazzo,” and other bad words) with the exception of the aforementioned “Drunken Sailor” sung in English and “Uno. Dos. Uno. Tres.” in Spanish and is definitely anti-fascist and anti-cop. I’m down with that. Fans of the Czech label Pasazer will be into this. –Juan Espinosa (Rebel Time / Dure Realite)

Peoples Army Jamboree – A Rebel Time Records Compendium
