Petrol Girls - Cut & Stitch (Hassle Records)
Ian Mackaye once said: “I think anger is a really beautiful thing when it’s put to work”. Petrol Girls are one of the few bands that keep rage against the machine. Cut & Stitch is probably one of the most relevant political and feminist statements in years, there’s a clear perspective on a bunch of issues, from feminism to environmental issues, from mental health to a so needed political change. Petrol Girls defiant attitude is inspirational as a whole, vocalist
Ren Aldridge powerful and penetrating voice challenge us all, raises the essential questions and points out to the path we should take to somehow be part of this slow political change.
Raw, brutal and straight to the point, every track on Cut & Stitch burst with passion, energy and powerful lyrics. This an extraordinarily-talented punk effort and a triumphant political statement. Well done!
