Football, Not Soccer:
Two brilliantly named bands on this excellent slab of UK Anarcho folk pop punk. If bands like Snuff or Chumbawamba are your cup of greased tea, then this will be a tasty treat, indeed.
Thatcher on Acid (was there ever a better band name?) specialize in hard edged melodic songs that have a Billy Bragg meets Hüsker Dü vibe to them. They even do a (relatively straightforward) cover of The Wedding Present on here!
Wat Tyler seem to be in it to take the piss out of everything (including themselves)! They write some super sharp, spiky little punk songs that are both ultra-poppy and quite witty. Very memorable melodies and a few surprises.
