Concrete Sox


Concrete Sox hailed from the UK in the mid-'80s and to this day there are legions of crust bands trying to replicate the sound that these guys captured on their first album entitled Your Turn Next. The album starts off with female singing over a music sample from the movie Suspiria scored by the mighty Goblin. There are a few moments of female singing peppered throughout the album that seem to add to its overall atmosphere. Some may say these moments are out of place but personally I think they are just brilliant. Did I mention the riffs? Concrete Sox cough up some great ones here and really show how great of a anarcho-crossover band they were blending punk, hardcore and thrash just effortlessly. If you dug the Toxic Waste post I started off this blog with you will love this shit. Get it.
