V/A – For Family and Flag Volume 2 (Pirates Press Records)

This 16 song collection is the audio edition of the Pirates Press 2023 family album. Punks often consider their peers to be their brothers and sisters and that is the exact mood that the good ship Pirates Press conveys. A band of friends, bonded by music that transcends borders and boundaries. This collection is musically rich and colourful.

Kicking off with the warm soulful tons of The Inciters and the ska-rocksteady sounds of The Slackers, you can’t help smiling as your toes start tapping. A couple of Pirates Press’ hot names of the day Territories and The Drowns put in some very strong numbers. Teenage Bottlerocket’s So Dumb is an instant classic, and hopefully this will get people to sit up and listen to the likes of Flores Y Fuego, DeeCRACKS and the wonderful Sweat.

Brigata Vendetta announce their landing in style (watch out for these cats) and Stomper 98 and Noi!se prove that there is life in the old dogs yet. I’ve cherry picked some of the names but there isn’t a duff song on here so get on board and indulge yourself with this batch of anthems for the high seas. Tom Chapman
