Beyond Pink - Pride and Prejudice LP

"Second LP for this all-girl hardcore punk band from Malmo, Sweden, out on one of the best feminist punk labels, Emancypunx records from Poland. I remember trading with Jenni Emancypunx for BEYOND PINK's first LP (The New Black) but it was sold out, so when this came in I was obviously excited. Thrashy, '80s-fused hardcore punk, with sing along choruses, slightly metallic breaks and pissed-off vocals. These five ladies give off some serious rage and play their style unapologetically, yet don't seem to take themselves too seriously and aren't afraid to show their feminine side either - in other words, all the things I haven't had the guts to do yet. At first glance (and hearing), a simple-minded nitwit would think this is the equivalent to 'fashion bro core' - it is in fact the very opposite. With tongue firmly in cheek and heart sewed on (colourful) sleeve, BEYOND PINK take a punch (proverbially, literally and musically) at all the things that need punching: idiots in the pit, sexist attitudes, 'trend punks' who think their clone punk outfit is a statement, people who bring dogs to shows, or their bedroom wall because their own brain is driving them insane. From their lyrics, album/track titles and attitude, one easily concludes that these girls have had to deal with their share of questioning - what female band doesn't, for fuck sake; when will it end? Yet I believe clear skies fear no thunder and it's bands like this that set apart the posers from those poking fun at posers and still managing to deceive said posers. This band will rub own prejudices in your face and show off its colours with pride! At the end of the day it's all about attitude and there's a healthy amount of it here!"

"The new Beyond Pink LP rules. Best liner notes and lyrics I have seen
in a while!"
