Amebix – No Sanctuary: The Spiderleg Recordings

Music — Doctor Ninja on August 15, 2008 at 5:24 pm

Amebix sounds like someone yelling down a hole. This is classic crusty punk though, No Masters, No Gods. They sang it first. Twenty five years ago. Ironically that song doesn’t include the lyrics “no masters, no gods” so I guess they never sang it at all.
As far as anarcho-punk goes I much prefer Crass or Subhumans to Amebix. There’s a lot of moaning and groaning in Amebix that makes me wanna shoot heroin into my eyeballs rather than go out and smash the state. The Spiderleg recordings are a chugging and miserable soundtrack to the squatters life of squalor. I’m going to seek sanctury now… in Lil’ Wayne’s “Tha Carter III”! He’s got tattoos on his face and he’s not asking for spare change.
