Citizen Fish hit an excellent return a few years back by holding up the stronger side of a split with Leftover Crack. Since then the band have become more prolific than their related band, the classic Subhumans. This is their second release in the last year or so and the band are touring fairly heavily (soon to be supporting The Levellers - what must end up being the biggest stages the band have played on). So, having found a new momentum after Deadline, this EP keeps the band moving forward.

Goods last year, is probably the best album that I've heard from Citizen Fish. A great collection of punked-up ska, catchy, bouncy and varied. This EP is a more straight-forward affair but does not suffer from it. The songs are immediate (I think I was singing bits of Unemplode and HD Riot after the first listen), enjoyable and righteous. If there is one thing to note about these songs, it's how current they are - Unemplode is obviously about the current recession; HD Riot about the riots that spread across the UK in Summer 2010 (when Citizen Fish were playing Rebellion); Beyond Belief while an anti-religion song is still in the context of the world today. The last three songs are a bit more broad in their political scope but remain wholly relevant amongst the chaos of the depressed modern world.

In summary, then, what you have is catchy songs with poignant lyrics. For fans of the band or fans of classic-sounding, brass-backed ska, you can't go wrong. Also, the CD being released on the band's label with Active Distribution means it's a bargain from the AD site. Highly recommended. My brother said there is never a reason to listen to ska. I reply 'au contrare, mon frere', which I believe is French for 'you don't know squat'. Pick it up.
