Commonly known as "that liberal punk band from
Canada". I've actually been listening to them for
a while, and I'd have to say Less Talk, More Rock is
definitely their strongest effort to date. Some people
critcize this band for their politically-charged lyrics,
while a few slightly less educated morons rag on them
for being Canadian. Who the fuck cares is what I say.
It's good music. Why argue with it?
you can tell from the song titles, Propagandhi is not
afraid to make their political views known. They get
their points across with mostly pummeling, at times
melodic, musical backup. One can't help but notice the
band's obvious sarcasm in many songs as well, like in
"A Public Dis-Service Announcement from Shell"
(not really a song but oh well). The band even goes
so far as collectively "Refusing to Be a Man".
There are also hints at emo themes in songs like "Anchorless"
good examples of melodic songs would be "I Was
a Pre-Teen McCarthyist" and "Resisting Tyrannical
Government". Those two are also my personal favorites,
along with "...And We Thought That Nation-States
Were a Bad Idea". If you're feeling angry, give
a listen to "Nailing Descartes to the Wall/(Liquid)
Meat is Still Murder" or "Rio De San Atlanta,
Manitoba," two brutally fast songs that'll get
has a little something for everyone. Unfortunately,
a lot of people will stupidly overlook them because
of their obscurity or leftist views. For those who care
to give the band a chance though, this is a solid album
clocking in at a little over 25 minutes long. But hey,
if the songs were as long as their titles, we'd be in
