I don't appreciate, what these chaps try to articulate in song #4.

Rioting, the unbeatable high
Adrenaline shoots your nerves to the sky
Everyone knows this town is gonna blow
And it's all gonna blow right now

Now you can smash all the windows that you want
All you really need are some friends and a rock
Throwing a brick never felt so damn good
Smash more glass, scream with a laugh and wallow with the crowds, watch them kicking peoples' ass

But you get to the place where the real slave drivers live
It's walled off by the riot squad aiming guns right at your head
So you turn right around and play right into their hands
And set your own neighborhood burning to the ground instead

Riot, the unbeatable high
Riot, sends your nerves to the sky
Riot, playing right into their hands
Tomorrow you're homeless, tonight it's a blast

Get your kicks in quick, they're calling the National Guard
Now could be your only chance to torch a police car
Climb the roof, kick the siren in and jump and yelp for joy
Quickly, dive back in the crowd, slip away now, don't get caught

Let's loot the spiffy hi-fi store
Grab as much as you can hold
Pray your full arms don't fall off
Here comes the owner with a gun

Riot, the unbeatable high
Riot, sends your nerves to the sky
Riot, playing right into their hands
Tomorrow you're homeless, tonight it's a blast

The barricades spring up from nowhere
Cops in helmets line the lines
Shotguns prod into your bellies
The trigger fingers want an excuse now

The raging mob has lost its nerve
There's more of us but who goes first?
No one dares to cross the line
The cops know that they've won

It's all over but not quite
The pigs have just begun to fight
They club your heads, kick your teeth
Police can riot all that they please

Riot, the unbeatable high
Riot, sends your nerves to the sky
Riot, playing right into their hands
Tomorrow you're homeless, tonight it's a blast

Riot, the unbeatable high
Riot, sends your nerves to the sky
Riot, playing right into their hands

Tomorrow you're homeless, tonight it's a blast
Tomorrow you're homeless, tonight it's a blast
Tomorrow you're homeless, tonight it's a blast
Tomorrow you're homeless, tonight it's a blast

Mob Violence was originally written by the Apostles.

I've come up from the slime and the factory grime
Where all my friends' dads are serving their time
And the working class women's faces don't shine
When they're scrapping a living on the poverty line
And their kids don't read Janet and John
Instead their learning how to make a petrol bomb
The communist party wail and whine
But I've got no time for that sickening slime
The national fascists call their creed
But I've got no need for that bullshit breed
The pacifists say "reject and refuse"
Ha, I've got no use for that brain abuse
Mob Violence, mob violence
Fists and faces meet as we take to the street
Mob violence, mob violence
Because we get our kicks throwing bottles and bricks
Mob violence, mob violence
Class anger explodes as we take to the roads
No white collared johns gonna lead me on
He wont talk so big when his Bentleys gone
No politician will stop my mission
He won't travel far when his legs are missing
No Eton blue collars gonna screw up my rota
Especially when his heads underneath my motor
All your pacifist preaching pisses me off
Whilst peace, love and dope just makes me cough
See. The only thing I know that makes me feel high
Is a half brick landing in a coppers eye
The only thing I know that makes me feel nice
Is the sight and sound of an incendiary device

Man, If you've got this limited "Midwinter" ep. Why not upload it for the dummies whom miss it like me ? :-)
Great blog, I appreciated it through years!
Cheers!

Has it sold out already? Will post it sometime soon, just need to check it's sold out...

paco said...

Yeah I think so. It was limited to 300 copy in benefit for Hunt Sabs.
There is a big 7" serie in that way with bands like Liberty, Oi Polloi, Cress.. all the good stuff. On global resistance record. It's must be pre-ordered I guess.

I just talked to Chaz from Global Resistance, he said he has a couple of Subscriptions left so get in touch with him if you want these. I won't be posting these anytime soon.

paco said...

Done! Thanks you for the info. Cheers!
