The most amazing thing about Subhumans' new LP, is that it doesn’t really feel new at all. 'Crisis Point' feels like it could have come at any point in the band’s impressive, nearly 40 year career. Part of that is no doubt due to Dick Lucas’ familiar voice, and his unique half shouted, half sung delivery. Another part has to be that Subhumans haven’t had a lineup change since 1983. That continuity clearly has musical benefits. Their rhythmic, propulsive, adventurous sound has never been bound by punk’s traditional three chords.
Then, of course, there’s the ambitious message. Those messages haven’t changed much since Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher were on the receiving end of their wrath. Songs against authority and conformity never go out of style, no matter who the president is. While it’s tempting to call Crisis Point timely, it’s actually timeless. In truth, Crisis Point is a not so gentle reminder of why Subhumans are, and have always been a leading voice in the anarcho-punk movement. These words are important, and these words have power.
