Back in 2004, The Fallout released their first – and classic- album “Turning Revolution Into Money” on Longshot Music. The album was recorded at guitarist Byron’s home studio ‘The Farmhouse,’ where, incidentally, he has also recorded other Rebel Time Records bands like The Rotten and The Class Assassins.
It’s been exactly two years since the release of Atterkop’s debut album “Liber Abaci”! A cracking release! As one reviewer noted, it’s “an album as hard-hitting in its beliefs as much as it is in its vibrant and genre-crossing Punk-Rock sound, Liber Abaci is chaotic, intense and quite beautiful in its focused, tenacious and unrelenting rage.” Well put!
Here’s an interview we did with the band shortly after the album’s release.
Greetings to everyone out there still supporting underground music!
We’re still here after 10 years and over 20 releases! That’s amazing! We’ve put out some of the best socially conscious and political music on the big island! Heck, we even put out some great records from across the pond and beyond! We’ve organized shows, tours, events … you name it! Can’t say it has been easy though, we’ve had some serious struggles these past years, and we’ve lost some amazing people along the way as well. But here we are, in 2018, 10 years later, ready to keep this beautiful thing going! No compromise to what we believe in!
So, thank you to everybody who has stood with and beside us all these years. We’ve got some massive plans for the label in 2018 and we’re gonna keep doing this if you are, too!
We are busy working behind the scenes in a much needed regrouping at the label, so thank you in advance from the bottom of our hearts for your patience!
This year, we will join the rest of the world and build a proper website. And we’ve got some amazing releases and shows coming up! Stay Tuned, thank you again for the support!!!

(While Mossin Nagant weren’t an official Rebel Time Records band, we certainly dug them enough to get copies of their CD to distribute on this side of the pond. Here’s an interview we did with the band.)
As previously promised, and without further ado, here is a bit of an interview with Basque streetpunk band Mossin Nagant. We’ve been listening to their latest self-titled release pretty much non-stop and have copies of it available in our bandcamp distro …
For those of us who are not familiar with Mossin Nagant, could you please introduce yourselves. Who and what is Mossin Nagant?
Mossin Nagant is a streetpunk band from Vitoria-Gasteiz, basque country. Since 2003, our band has changed quite a bit during the years. We founded our band on a marxist, anti-fascist philosophy, which reflects in our lyrics. Since then, we have had gigs in all kinds of political concerts and festivals in the Basque Country and the rest of Europe (Spanish State, Italy, London, …).
In 2005 Mossin Nagant released an album called “Redskin Sounds from Euskal Herria.” Now in 2013 you have released a new album! It took a long time, but it is well worth the wait!! Please tell us about the new record…
Haha! Because we don’t make a living of our music, there has been some fluctuation of band members – lack of time, work issues, etc. Work kills time for the best things of life. For those reasons it took us a lot of time to record and edit the album although we have been playing some of the new songs live for years. Finally we’re happy with the result: the work we put into it and we managed to release a different, grown sound. We could count on people very committed to our music and we edited the album accordingly to the availability of our means. Big ups to Rusty Knife Records (France) and Rumagna Sgroza (Italy) who produced the CD-Version with us and to Brixton Records (Bilbo), Urban Hell Tattoo (Zaragagoza) and Mai Morirem (Barcelona) who produced the vinyl. The album is titled “Mossin Nagant” and has 9 songs. We hope people like it as much as we do.
Mossin Nagant has songs like “R.A.S.H’ and “Red Skins.” Can you tell us what being a red skin or R.A.S.H means to you?
Being skinhead is inherently connected to the working class and its struggles. Music by and for skinheads in our view is the logical consequence and perhaps one of the most honourable forms of cultural expression. Anti-fascim is deeply rooted in our daily life and we try to reflect this in lyrics, attitude, things and acts. Some members of our groups have been active militants of local R.A.S.H. and similar social movements. Our special situation (opression by the Spanish state and living in an occupied country) has taught us to commit to the struggle for independence and to support our political prisoners.
On the song Zauri Zaharra you utilize a musical instrument called a txalaparta. What is a txalaparta and what is it’s significance?
The Txalaparta is a specialized Basque music device mde of wood or stone. Used, in the past, as a medium of communication between valleys, nowadays it is an important reference of basque folklore. In this song we used the Txalaparta because the lyrics are about the history of our country and the necessity for revolutionary struggle and independence.
Are there other redskin/political bands that we should know about or be listening to?
Of course! The basque country is a nest of all kinds of political bands, the skin, hardcore and punk scene is active and growing. We would like to recommend you our brothers ‘Boot Boys’, another streetpunk group from our city and Zartako (unfortunately they don’t play out anymore) from Bilbo.
We would like to send a solidarity salute to all of your people out there in Canada. Hopefully we’ll meet some day in concert!
Thanks to the good people at the Redstar 73 Antifa Blog for the interview! It’s a great site with plenty of great interviews and more…they’ve previously interviewed Rebel Time Records bands like Spanner and Section 4!
What follows is an interview with Action Sedition done up for the February 2014 issue of Tres Flechas zine (put out by RASH GDL), out of Guadalajara, Mexico. English version followed by Spanish version! Thanks to RASH GDL for sharing it with us!
3FZ – How are you guys? Could you please introduce yourselves and tell us how the band started.
Greetings comrades! Action Sedition is made up of Milioi! (ex – Diarrhée Bucale, Les Gens D’armes) on bass and vocals, Remi (ex – In Situ) on guitar, Bo ( ex – Open Wounds) on guitar, Eric on vocals and Junior on drums. The band was formed with its current line-up in September 2011, following our first show in Montreal. Continue reading “Interview With Action Sedition – 2014”
Back in November 2012 we heard Action Sedition for the first time, via a Youtube video for the song “Prisonniers Politique.” We loved the music and message and immediately hit the band up for the interview which follows.
Since then, we’ve been honoured to have Action Sedition on the label in the form of not one, not two, but three releases!
