5 Song CDEP Recorded 2004 released May 2005 (Iron Man Records)

Tracklisting:
Fuck The Government / Bring Me Their Heads / Not In My Name / Open Fire / Death To Fanatics

Reviews:

“..it seems only fitting that their debut CDEP be a focused, uncompromising attack on callous warmongers everywhere…. the importance of the message being delivered utterly eclipses the medium that delivers it.” Ian Glasper – Terrorizer Magazine – Issue 132 June 2005

“..a bass and rhythm section as tight as eberneezer scrooge…..Too short by half, this is nonetheless essential and extreme.” Positive Creed fanzine

“..hardcore punk rock in total English style: fast and chaotic and like a fist to the head…..This will fuel you like Crazy.” No Front Teeth Fanzine

“Last Under The Sun are one of the best hardcore bands around they create songs with a clear message and deliver them in crushing and uncompromising style.” Will Munn Rhtyhm and Booze Fanzine

“..great hooks and a furious sense of energy driving the whole thing. This is one of the best punk rock records I’ve heard recently from Britain (Birmingham)” Reason to Believe #10 Fanzine

LAST UNDER THE SUN – ‘All Empires Crumble’ CD

Positive Creed Fanzine

This is a 4 song anti war/anti everything, speed punk stomp. Everything on here is a winner….a bass and rhythm section as tight as eberneezer scrooge and a guitarist with more about him than just thrashing away at chords. Song 2 “Bring me their heads” is an anarcho masterpiece as is the relentless “not in my name.”

Musically intriguing “last under the sun” also make use of samples, intercutting them to great effect. Had crass started out now in modern times, they might have ended up sounding a bit like this. Too short by half, this is nonetheless essential and extreme.

May 4th 2005 Will Munn Rhythm and Booze

It seems somewhat apt that I’m reviewing this EP the day before the general election, you see this is the Birmingham based hardcore punk bands election special and to sum it up simply its somewhat political. The band decided to release this EP to contribute to the Stop The War campaign in anyway that they could. The accompanying press release had a host of information about the campaign, whilst the music itself is perhaps even more direct, the opening number is entitled Fuck The Government and pretty much sums up the bands views, its a quick number that begins with samples before launching into a hundred miles an hour hardcore thrash whilst the singer screams out the songs title over and over again. Bring Me Their Heads and Open Fire are pretty self explanatory too, the latter imploring artists, bands, poets and even clowns to open fire and let their thoughts and voices be heard, whilst Not In My Name is a rage against the war itself asking whos name are they fighting for in the first place, as no one wanted to go to war and the loss of innocent lifes is inexcusable. Last Under The Sun are one of the best hardcore bands around they create songs with a clear message and deliver them in crushing and uncompromising style. If you want to find out more about the Stop The War campaign then check out the links via the bands website.

4 tracks of political, anti-war hardcore punk rock in total English style: fast and chaotic and like a fist to the head. A fist with a serious message clenched inside it: ‘Fuck The Government, ‘Bring Me Their Heads’, ‘Not In My Name’ and ‘Open Fire’.this is agitated….this will fuel you like crazy.

Terrorizer Magazine – Issue 132 June 2005

This Brummie trio have apparently been working closely with the Stirchley Stop The War group since their inception in 2001, so it seems only fitting that their new CDEP be a focused, uncompromising attack on callous warmongers everywhere. Musically they sound like a tight-as-arseholes reincarnation of the English Dogs when they had Stu Pid fronting them; this is classic anarcho punk, in that the importance of the message being delivered utterly eclipses the medium that delivers it. Peace out! – Ian Glasper
