Risographied A3 Poster – Download Code
S.O.D, like an internationalist punkonaut on the moon, looking the birth of another punk band release who mixed differents cultures from all continents that reflect the label’s identity, is proud to present you the first record of UZU.
This Montreal-based band has members from Algeria, Colombia, and Quebec who also play in other bands such Demokhratia, Bosque Rojo, and Ultra Razzia. UZU’s sound mixes elements of post-punk with dark, mid-tempo, melodic punk with an incisive vibe ala Siekiera! Their dramatic lyrics, sung in Arabic, are poetic and personal, yet they contain profound political messages if you read between the lines.
SOD#90 TURQUOISE – Sang, Larmes & Râles LP
Screenprinted cover + insert
co-release with Les Choeurs De l’Ennui
Two years after their debut « Hantise », Paris’ best – and sole – käng unit TURQUOISE are back with a new album entitled »Sang, larmes et râles ». If you expected a drastic change in terms of songwriting then you’re in for a major disappointment and you’re clearly deluded. However, if you crave for an extra portion of abrasive Swedish-style hardcore sung (well…) in French with lyrics dealing with our chaotic time, then this is exactly what you need. This time around the band went for a rockier feel without losing the aggression and focused on writing mean choruses that even the most inept singers should be able to shout along to. Eight songs of totalitarian hardcore in 16 minutes, no arsing around. The brilliant artwork reminiscent of anguished outsider art was drawn by the talented Alan Doyle and « Sang, larmes et râles » is released on Symphony of Destruction and Les Choeurs de l’Ennui. Go to your favourite off-licence and grab the thing.
