COMPULSION - Question Time For The Proles (4 Track CD Single)


Released in 1996 Question Time for the Proles is a blistering barrage about that New Labour reinventing the past notion of retrolution “Ancient times are taking over. Sentimental when you’re sober. Fills your mouth each time you speak. You choke.” they tell us that “Harold Wilson/Maurice Saatchi says that things are getting better for you” A year later New Labour also declared that “Things can only get better” with the help of hindsight we now know just who things got better for. Not us but them. Between 1992 and 1996 Compulsion were a breath of fresh air amongst the stagnant smell of the grunge and brit pop eras. Like S*M*A*S*H and These Animal Men they were lumped by the lumpen lazy music media into The New Wave Of New Wave scene. Compulsion were powerful and forceful in their presentation, a full on foot to the floor blast of Punk Raw guitars and chugging rhythms. Think 80’s Post Punk meeting the Manics, Nirvana and The Pixies, and you still won’t do this great forgotten band justice. Click here for some Compulsion. “Question time for the proles, The lunatics are running free and no-one knows.”
