Sid Oldpunk This release perfectly demonstrates how industrial-techno-punk should be done.

Not only is it musically intense (the bastard offspring of Prodigy and Pitchshifter?), it's lyrically accomplished too. Words that are both angry and full of love.

I've just seen them live (guitar and drums plus laptop) in a small pub in England, and I left the venue with a shit-eating grin on my face.

Fuck off, Sleaford Mods, you poseurs. Favorite track: Almost Gone.

i've been trapped by fear i've been stuck with doubt but i'll no longer be afraid i've got to let this out we'll push through past this pain this sadness left behind we'll build these muscles stronger nothing can stop us now i know we can't be broken i know that we can't quit i'll no longer be afraid we don't have time for it let's heal these wounds together let's watch these scars fade i feel my blood pumping so hard i feel like i could break let this out let it out let this out let me out you can't get past this these dark days are going to pass and these dark clouds are going to pass past sadness and heartache still vulnerable but stronger nothing can stop me now i feel like i could explode past sadness and heartache burning through this life i want to let this all go

i remember rooms beautiful full of music and love even though it won't be the same i haven't had enough i remember rooms of people screaming but banging heads now just nod guitars and voices just mumble and the words add up to what? well i remember songs that inspired your lyrics that changed lives don't tell me now that we're old and tired that our idealism's died time passes, my youth fades but i still want it all keep these memories as inspiration and try a little bit more and so another hour is gone and then another day is gone and soon another year is gone i feel my life is almost gone it's so easy to be defeated so boring to give up i want to feel the opposite way to feel this is just the start that past will never return those friends are gone take from them, their wisdom and passion and keep moving on almost gone to honor the spirits of those that left us still burning so bright i'm not giving up today not going to sleep tonight in the name of justice and peace i can feel you by my side with power and strength and love to help us by

everything i used to have, well seems to have gone away everyone who used to be there is not here today i'm trying to keep myself together i'm trying to stay strong but i'm grasping at threads of nothingness how can i fucking go on all i can feel is loss, weakness and fear everything so fucking distant nothing left that's near all senses choked and numb or fucking gone i feel so close to the bottom how can i fucking go on how can i go on remember when things felt together not broken apart i remember i used to feel something other than ache, in my heart but now those days feel so far fucking gone i feel so close to the bottom you can't get past this i can't fucking do this (i can fucking do this?)

my heroes were millionaires full of self-hate, or so they sung i was captivated by the sounds of their screams their guitars and their drums but what about the consequence of idolizing existential despair? When teenage angst turns to self defeat determination to never go anywhere you know they want you to stay down they fucking want you to stay down you know they want you to stay down you let them win when you stay down doesn't it keep us pacified? wallowing in the comfort of sad day after day, drink after drink stylishly depressed well i'm sick of spending so many hours feeling sorry for myself well fuck that so get up you know they want you to stay down so get up don't get down
