  Sick56 / Higgins++ - Out of the Black Pool
By Bald Cactus - Issue 23 submitted

This was one of those items sent for review where I thought : Uh oh, this´ll be pretty forgetful. But surprise, surprise, both sides are much better than expected. Higgins++ does a cover of ´California Uber Alles´ called ´Cool Britannia Uber Alles´, aabout the Iraq situation and Blair´s role in it. And bugger me ! If Andy hasn´t been listening to the advice in the reviews of his CD. It starts off like his regular acoustic stuff and just at the point where you´re thinking ´Ooh could do with some drums to spice it up´, BANG ! They and the song thump into life, so you get a pretty good version of a classic song. And where SICK56 didn´t move me too much previously, these songs offer definite improvement. The first one ´Violence´ is like the best Chaos UK stuff and the second (Crash and Burn) is like ACAB era Contempt. This is a fat piece of vinyl and comes with an Andy Higgins article on Iraq (The Truth Behind the War). Very interesting piece of music to make you think/mad, nice package and overall, some decent punk rock into the bargain ! (7/10)
