LUX is a new Barcelona band with members of SECT, THE SHITTY LIMITS, FRACASO, PESADILLA,... they play UK82 classic punk in the vein of more anarcho peacepunk bands. Sounds in the way of THE EXPELLED, ACTION! PACT!,...with female vocals.

Our take: Demo cassette from this new hardcore-infused anarcho band out of Barcelona. While there are a lot of bands pursuing a similar tack in the current punk scene, Lux sound pretty special to my ears. The main thing that sticks out to me is the drumming, which has a really strong and unique style that seems to take equal parts from Penny Rimbaud’s skittering snare rhythms and the propulsive forward march of the Partisans. I’m not really sure how the drummer is pulling this off, but it’s really, really cool. The vocalist also has a pretty distinctive shout that reminds me a bit of the singer for Sad Boys. The recording quality is as rough as you’d expect from a bunch of Barcelonan anarchists, but that’s pretty much to be expected. Anyway, if you’re into this neo-retro-anarcho sound, this is a pretty cool one.
