“Faced with the difficult task of having to follow up last year’s very successful tribute to the historic local punk rock venue The Rat, this year we’ve decided to think internationally, go global and celebrate the whole wide world. We’ll better explain what that means in the weeks to come. In the meantime, snatch up those tickets because like every year it promises to be one of the top three Holiday events of the season.”

Album Review: Culture Shock – ‘Attention Span’

Culture Shock haven’t released any new music since 1989. But that statement is only partially true; although the name “Culture Shock” hasn’t been used in nearly three decades, the band’s members have been actively involved in various punk bands together- most notably Citizen Fish and the Subhumans. Since they’ve been playing together for so many years, it makes the band’s return all the easier to digest, and helps Attention Span, their fourth studio album, to avoid any of the pitfalls that generally plague reunion albums.

As a matter of fact, Attention Span hardly sounds like a reunion album at all. It hardly sounds like Culture Shock has even taken any kind of extended break- there are no awkward compositions that sound like the messy result of members not wanting to hurt each other’s feelings by telling them their new ideas are bad, nor are there any over-bloated “we’re back!” sentiments throughout the album. Instead, Attention Span is 10 straight-forward anarcho ska-punk jams, rallying against the upper class and modern apathy and comfort.

When punk rock is done right, there really isn’t much else to say about it. Dick Lucas and company have been composing some of the finest political ska-punk anthems for years and Attention Span is the latest addition to their legacy, helping to prove that it doesn’t matter what name the songs are released under.

Atterkop (ska-punk) release video for “Picket Fence” off upcoming album “Liber Abaci”

Bristol dub-punk act Atterkop have been working hard on their forthcoming debut album ‘Liber Abaci’, due out on October 1st via Riot Ska Records. Bringing together dub and hardcore punk influences with strong political themes Atterkop are unveiling their first new music since 2013’s self-titled EP.

“Picket Fence” is the first track off “Liber Abaci” and you can skank your brains out to it below.

Here is what the band had to say on the song and video:

“Picket Fence” was written back in 2014 when the estate that one of us live on in Bristol was targeted by the National Front/far right. They had armed them selves with spray paint and painted a vile slogan of racial hatred along the main road. Needless to say the graffiti was removed promptly. Bristol is a wonderfully diverse city and that is what makes it such a special place to live, and this behaviour will not be tolerated… and here we are 2 years on and our record is due for release soon and recently the estate has been targeted again. Only this time the houses of European nationals have been vandalised, destroyed and covered in 6 foot high graffiti saying “GO HOME” & “NOT WELCOME”.
