FUAL - Fuck Up And Live! LP

Another brilliant punk LP from the Meantime Records archives here, this time from Belfast. This ones got all the grit and intensity of bands like DIRT and TOXIC WASTE, but carrying loads of melody and character. The songs are tied together with relevant sound-clips, and vary in tone and style, from fast and propulsive, to subdued and dreamy, all the while getting their messages across. CHUMBAWAMBA definitely comes to mind a lot too, and not just because the LP opens with a clip from their first single. This is an often overlooked gem for anyone interested in anarcho-punk, woman-fronted melodic punk, or punk from N. Ireland.
