Every Weekend by Dun 2 Def

Dun 2 DefAre you fed up of that music that Americans call punk? You can get all the original energy of English Hardcore Punk with a band from Milton Keynes called Dun 2 Def. This is music with all the blood and thunder a six piece band can punch out. The unusual line up of two singers gives them the ability to add extra vocal punch in a way that Crass sometimes did.

But nostalgia is a big pull, and the affection I hold for The Ruts and Crass mean I can’t step out of my time capsule. This album doesn’t break any barriers or do anything new – but it does do the high-energy guitar thrash and shouting really, really well. In fact, if you were coming to the traditional side of British Punk now you would rate this very highly against bands like The Damned and the whole Oi! movement. In the end, this is great, loud music to wreck your body to.

  1. I totally agree with your review.. this is a cracking album from a relatively unknown band.
    Plus I got it for a bargainous 5 quid from their Myspace site instead of paying up to £12.99 from the various online stores that are selling it!!
    Now I just need to check the band out live.
    Do yourselves a favour and give this cd a listen to.
