ZOUNDS - Go All The Way EP 2005

This band we always love listen to.... awesome melodies mixed brilliant lyrics and they released finally their second album 'The Redemption Of Zounds' in 2011 with tracks commenting on the USA's War on Terror. There are already six years ago since they released this EP with three tracks but the time was right for this. Zounds are an English anarchist band formed in 1977 from loose jamming sessions around the Reading area. Originally they were part of the cassette culture movement, releasing material on the Fuck Off Records label, and were also involved in the squatting and free festival scene. The name of the band is derived from the old English minced oath coined by William Shakespeare: "zounds", which is a contraction of "God's Wounds", referring to the crucifixion wounds of Jesus Christ, formerly used as a mildly blasphemous oath. The band released their first album The Curse Of Zounds! on Rough Trade Records in 1981, recording and mixing the LP within five days. Since their early 1980s heyday, and despite endless offers to record a tour, Zounds have only ever played intermittently. So you can say what you want, Zounds is delicious and it's impossible not talk about them if you think of Punk from the UK. Get all their stuff you can find and check out their second album.
