Rats In The Wall - Can't Cheat Karma
A classic song covered today. Zounds are an British Anarcho-Punk band who were formed in Reading in 1977. Taking their name from a William Shakespeare blasphemous oath which referred to the crucifixion wounds of Christ, they split in 1982 but as with many of the early punk bands they're reformed and still active. Their debut release was 1980's Can't Cheat Karma ep which was on Crass Records and featured the tracks War, Subvert and Can't Cheat Karma.
A cover of the title track of that ep has just appeared on Dead End which is the debut album by Huntington Beach, California's Rats In The Wall. Featuring former F-Minus and Leftover Crack vocalist/guitarist Brad Logan on guitar, Eva Hall on vocals, Mike Westcoe on bass and Donny Morris on drums they're definitely worth checking out.
A slice of original English punk rock that's still as relevant today, this is Can't Cheat Karma.....
