No Love Lost

Remastered reissue of this idiosyncratic, melancholic peace-punk death-trip, originally released in '83 on Corpus Christi. On this, their one and only album, Omega Tribe are picketing the same displays of government fuckery and asking the same big questions ("What the hell am I fighting for?" etc) as the rest of the Crass mob, but what comes across on No Love Lost is the band's sheer BEWILDERMENT at the state of the world, as opposed to the standard-issue DISDAIN for it. Far more wavy and melodic than their '82 7" Angry Songs, No Love Lost's inner hippie comes bubbling to the surface regularly throughout the LP,  with sweet (maybe?), melodic passages amid the barrage of anarcho-punk rag-dolling - Poison Girls' fury cut with Dan Treacy's disheartened twang. This sincere and disjointed and CONFUSED delivery of their message leaves us with a stark, honest document of self-expression and protest - and one completely immune to imitation. Black vinyl with insert.
