  The G.O.P. - England Sucks 4 track 7” ep (Blind Spot Records)
By Blackpool Rox II (Editor) Issue 9 (2004) submitted

This is a great record, the 12th release from Blind Spot records ! The title track England Sucks is a tongue in cheek stab at Britishness ‘ … [they] even got shitty names like Charles and Roy’ etc On first listening it struck me of the early singles by the Subhumans (UK) and The Mental single. The gatefold artwork is based on the crass format and the inner sleeve reveals pictures of the band wearing Black Flag and Avengers t-shirts – so they are coming from the right zones. Whilst England Sucks is clearly the best track on this ‘clear vinyl’ 7” all the others are pretty good too. Portland Politics is a tongue in cheek stab at Portland liberals for some reason and Who We Are is nice and fast and furious. I am keen to hear more by this band. I don’t have a particularly informed opinion of where they are really coming from based on this 7” – but the picture of vocalist Ben Opshal on the inside of the gatefold sleeve wearing what appears like a mitre suggests flambuoyant irreverence, a la early 80’s Blood, with much humour and talent to boot. Highly recommended. Get it is $5 post paid from the label website , however having just visited the site I see that it is under construction, so you can obtain via snail mail at PMB 697, 3534 SE 52nd Avenue, Portland, Oregon United States of Amerikkka. Also I have done some googling and G.O.P. is a republican based organisation working hard to explain that the Iraq war is cool, and if it wasn’t for Bush it would be a lot worse. Can I please have some of those strong mind-bending hallucinogens that the supporters of must take at their GOP sex-gang parties – it’s all falling into place now. (9/10)
