Ex-members of Concrete Sox / Default / Mortal Terror / Downfall and many more playing catchy melodic punk. The early 90’s were a great time in Nottingham with a healthy punk scene and Slumgang being one of the guiding lights. This LP features the 3 tracks from their 1994 single with 7 more than only saw the light of day on cassette. About goddamn time!!
In their own words :
"SLUMGANG formed in 1992 when being a punk or looking punk was still dangerous. We got spat on and started on,just for the way we looked, punk was still underground back then. Hardcore thrash was the norm but me and Loyd loved the old school sound of SOCIAL DISTORTION, AGENT ORANGE and ADOLESCENTS et al, so we quit the bands we were in and started a new one. We still had our staunch political beliefs but weren't DISCHARGE clones! We wrote melodic songs with social politics, about what we saw in daily life and a few about drinking to remove the day to day detrius of life on the dole. We were just four best friends who happened to play different instruments. In my opinion we were ahead of our time - too punk for the pop kids. and too melodic for the chaos punks - no point having a good haircut if nothing is going on underneath it. Intelligent , well written songs by four mates who got drunk with like minded people"
