The Square Peg.
“Regeneration” Stranded Records.

Out of every sound conjured up here, the one that screams loudest, is the sound of realisation that after so many years and personnel changes, The Square Peg just may have hit a home run! Without a doubt many talented, and legendary musicians have stood where founder member Larry Nicol's recruits stand now. But did THEY ever make it seem so effortless to play excellent punk rock? There is a whole re-birth programme taking place here from The Square Peg. Consummated by understanding. Nourished by experience. Delivered healthily, and without complication, by a shared determination to create their own legacy. They are proud creators.
And us? We get to take it home and enjoy its best moments.
The excellent “Who Are You” is an inspired choice for opening track. Followed by the brash guitars and distorted vocals on “Lunatics”, this album has already got you hooked! “The Chosen” and “ Into Retreat” open things up perfectly. Proving, only 4 tracks in, just how good this line-up of The Square Peg are.
"FFF " is track 5 and we see a slight sparkle in the eye. Never comedy value, but a tongue in cheek rant that will earn this song the honour of becoming the ragged anthem of drunk punks everywhere at pub closing time! Hundreds, I guarantee, will sing it in cities and towns. It’s genius!! Next up “City of Shit” is a raucous nod to the way we all feel sometimes, regardless where we live. Musically tight and composed it makes no mistake about what it wants to say. “Footsteps on my Grave” keeps the momentum and leads into the brilliant and very poignant “Hiroshima”. Guitar and drum gathers as Larry pierces the moments with lyrical observation. The song ends, almost like a final breath.
A cover of “Stab Your Back” (The Damned) is then followed by “Till the End” and a bizarre “Out of Bounds” which sounds like an acid fried Woody Guthrie number. The album screams its way to a close with “Pay the Price” then “Mohawk Brave” and reluctantly ending on “Mental Persuasion”

This is the first album proper from a band that has been around, in one shape or another, since 1984. Lets hope they don’t make us wait that long for another!
