ARREST "La Poli Bastarda" 7"
ARREST follow up their killer demo with La Poli Bastarda 7", finding itself at the perfect intersection of Spanish punk and UK 82/Oi!. On this record, members of other excellent Barcelona bands such as CRIMEN DE ESTADO and SIBERIA harness their appreciation for DECIBELIOS, RIP, and BLITZ into 4 flawless tracks of driving and angry punk, with an infusion of melody and catchiness that recalls NO HOPE FOR THE KIDS. In the true Barcelona spirit, lyrics commenting on state repression and class struggle are delivered with impeccable timing in both Spanish and Catalan, including an added bonus of English translations on the insert. The record comes beautifully packaged in full color with an obvious nod to the timeless 4-SKINS. This is a shared release with Discos Enfermos (Barcelona) and required material for fans of international punk.
