In 2018 Strength Records did the very first vinyl re-issue for the RIOT RIOT, UPSTART album. Last year Strength Records was disbanded but the friendly contact between Strength label owner Wouter (also running Rebellion Records) and Roger Miret remained. The 2018 re-issue sold out very quickly leaving an unfulfilled demand. Now here is a special 2022 CD edition this time presented by Rebellion Records. Different name, same people, even better quality!
Providing yet another uncompromising mixture of fast, ferocious New York Hardcore and punk-rock sing-alongs, “RIOT RIOT UPSTART’s” structure is very much alike “SOMETHING’S GOTTA GIVE”. With a total of 17 songs, the tracklist offers a variety of stompers – barely clocking the 90 second mark, and street rockin’ anthems such as title-track “Riot Riot Upstart” and “My Life”, undoubtedly leaving producer Lars Frederiksen’s (Rancid, The Bastards, Old Firm Casuals) mark on to this record!
