Lost Legion is the product of a few longtime Chicago Punks who have joined forces on this EP to produce a gritty ode to Oi! that recalls French ‘80s acts like Komintern Sect & L’infanterie Sauvage. Featuring members of Warrior Tribes, Primitive Teeth, Fuerza Bruta and more, Lost Legion pairs gruff vocals with catchy guitar riffs, particularly on the anthemic title track.
Street-punk-style gang vocals show up on the opener, as well as the closing track; a gravelly cover of The Go-Go’s party song “Tonite”. This record returns again and again to the idea of power – of electricity infusing energy into tense moments and people you’d rather forget; it seems to be an exercise in exorcising demons, one sinister riff at a time. 3 tracks!
