You Should be Listening to… Lost Tribe
”(…)I find a bit more interesting with what Lost Tribe is doing. The vibe you get when playing their demo or full length LP (out now via Blind Prophet Records) isn’t that of youth, it’s something way darker and much more cynical. Instead of songs being pure three minute blasts one after another, they pay off is the depth within these songs.
I have yet to see Lost Tribe live, but from the videos I’ve seen it’s not only more aggressive, but also a sense or urgency I haven’t seen in a punk band in a very long time. It’s almost as if each song is their last and this is the finish line for them. While they certainly aren’t trying to pull the “Mysterious Guy/Messageboard Hardcore” card, it still is hard to come by a lot of information from them. Honestly, that’s kind of refreshing, not because it’s mysterious, but because they let the music do the talking for them.” full review;

ICEAGE (Danish teen post punx… BLOGSPOT)
LOST TRIBE (Dark peace punx from Richmond, mem. of Aghast)
from the New York Times
A smart young punk band pushing out its life force, conceptually inspired but deep into a throwaway mood, condensing the entire clatter and tumble of its ensemble sound in every bar: we’re lucky to hear that. It usually comes on a first album; it usually only happens this way once. It happened a lot in 1977 — Wire’s “Pink Flag,” Pere Ubu’s “Modern Dance,” the Homosexuals’ “Record.” Iceage, a teenage band from Copenhagen that writes songs in English, has made in “New Brigade” an album a bit like those, with songs like chains of hooks that they’ve connected by sheer force of will.

Steve Ignorant’s CRASS : The Last Supper Tour
with special guests TBA!
…All Ages. Advance Tickets are $20 http://sonar.thundertix.com/venues/8/events/2418
Crass are remembered as the most notorious agit−propsters of the 70s and 80s, for being founders of the Stonehenge festival, to having questions raised in Parliament regarding their various pranks, including a spoof tape of a telephone conversation between Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan, to their instigation of the ’Stop The City’ marches, and many many more activities. They are also remembered for being the leading protagonists of the genre know known as anarcho−punk, for being the first band to make their records available at little more than cost price, and to print a “Pay No More Than…” price on their record sleeves to stop fans being ripped off. And although many will remember the Crass sound as being ’unlistenable cacophony’ and their lyrics as ’shock slogans and mindless token tantrums’ (copyright: The Sun), listen to these records now and what you hear may surprise you, as what went on the studio was actually quite revolutionary in more than just the political sense.
Crass gigs were more like events, encompassing music, poetry, film and performance. There were often stalls from various political organisations and the members of the band would wander around the audience handing out leaflets and lyric sheets. The incredible backdrops which covered the walls were created by G Sus (latterly Gee Vaucher) who also designed the band’s terrifying, humorous and highly acclaimed artwork. The films Crass projected at shows were also created by Gee and another filmmaker, Mick Duffield.
