Runt - DWP
Runt are a new band from London who's members have previously featured in bands such as Good Throb, Frau, Efialtis, Sarcasm, Cianuro, Permission, Personnel and No. In 2016 they released a Demo cassette and then on Christmas Day 2017 they released their debut album. It's called Positions Of Power and you can get it from La Vida Es Un Mus either on vinyl or digitally : https://lavidaesunmus.bandcamp.com/album/positions-of-power-mlp
Given the past history of the band members, it's no surprise that the songs on Positions Of Power are short, angry blasts of primitive hardcore punk. I've seen plenty of comparisons with Crass bandied about though whilst hearing certain sinilarities I'm not sure that I'd say they were too alike. What I do know is that singer Ashleigh Holland is one of the most recognisable and powerful vocalists in UK punk.
This song is gloriously furious and it's called DWP ....
