This is nothing like the old Blitz, because its a record entirely played by the only original Blitz member, guitarist Nidge on bass and guitar, Gary Bassnet from Attak on vocals. The result is an interesting post-punk sounding album, more relaxed and everything but OI ! sounding, with characteristic Nidge guitar playing plus a second guitar of basic but excellent riffling and soloing.
“Well, Mackie wasn’t interested, and Carl was living in Australia at the time, but Link offered me th opprtunity to do another Blitz album, and I wanted to do it. The song “Killing Dream” was actually written in 1983 and intended as a Blitz song anyway; it would’ve been the follow-up to “New Age” if things had been different.
But it was an odding time, there was very little going on in the punk scene, and of course, we didn’t have a drummer,se we had to use this horrible drum machine,which was the main drawback. But the album did pretty well for Link here, and it came out in America through Cleopatra.” Nidge died in 2007, aged 48, shortly after a reunion tour. Originally released in 1989 on Link Records. This is high quality fan club release.
