Limited repress on Restless Empire.
"When Crisis had their own personal Joy Division epiphany, they ultimately became Death in June.
When the rowdy Oi! band The Blitz went through the same thing, they
abruptly changed musical course and released Second Empire Justice,
alienating their skinhead fanbase almost overnight. Like Joy Division,
New Order, and Death in June, Blitz’s name had sketchy political
connotations; Nietzschean song titles like “New Age” didn’t help. In
fact, it was “New Age” and especially its promo video,
which exaggerated things just a little bit by stating the band were
from Manchester (really, they were from nearby New Mills) – that
signaled the sea change in the band’s sound. Suddenly the Blitz were
dressed in all black dress shirts, and it sounded like Bernard Sumner
was guesting on guitar. Oi! seer Gary Bushell had claimed Blitz’s 1982
Voice of a Generation LP was like The Clash’s debut album “in terms of
feel, suss and relevance.” Comparisons like this came to aquick halt
after Second Empire Justice came out." (Cvlt Nation)
