BPD044 - Jungle Jeopardy LP, by CRUDEZ Track List : 01 Listen To The Rhythm 02 World Of Fear 03 To Be Alive 04 Jungle Jeopardy 05 Last Night 06 Don't Trust Anyone 07 Prisoner 08 Warsaw (Joy Division cover) 09 Revenge 10 Us Is The Enemy This band hails from Istanbul. Just that fact should be enough to give it a listen, because how many bands do you know from Turkey (you occident-centring asshole)? If you know a lot of bands from Turkey, disregard the last sentence, but give Crudez a listen anyway, cause it's worth it. This is some great female-fronted UK82 à la Vice Squad, but played in the twenty-first century and, in my humble opinion, even better than the classics. Melodic and fierce at the same time. With lyrics kicking back against the fucked up political system in Turkey. Also a Joy Division cover is always welcome. Little anecdote : I saw Crudez live at the K-Town Hardcore Fest in 2019, and one of the members (I think the bassist) had been rejected at the Copenhagen airport and sent back to Turkey because customs officials feared he would stay in Denmark and ask for asylum, and Crudez had to find a last-minute replacement for their tour. So, fuck borders and long live Crudez!
