Hey folks, next up is some fine Hardcore Punk from Germany, the mighty RAWSIDE are aimed at ya and they bring with them their über-anthem "TEARS OF YESTERDAY". It's my personal favorite of them and they are (or at least were) a fucking damn great band. I love especially their legendary "STAATSGEWALT" full length album (their second output) and this one is probably one of the few very, very best albums and releases in general in the history of Punk to ever come out of Germany!!! Short an precise: You need to own it anyway!!! Also their debut and especially their brilliant tribute 7'' EP to the legends of VORKRIEGSJUGEND (/VKJ) are great stuff that you should also call your own, too. Their last two full length albums ("OUTLAW" and their more or less brandnew output of the title of ... - I don't know it anyway, haha;-)...) didn't really convinced me and 'to go shopping' with the AFA and to adopt and preach and practise and propagate this whole "If-you're-not-with-us-you're-against-us-and-this-means-you-must-be-a-damn-fucking-retarded-Nazi!!!" mentality and attitude of this self-proclaimed left and antifascist politically correct AFA scumbag scene also don't gives 'em to many points in my book today (btw, maybe this whole bands and guys in this camp should think one or two times about the fact that despise their oh so strong antifascist left-wing message uncountable- young- Nazis and Fascists of today love to listen to the music and lyrics of 'their bands', whihm also includes a band like RAWSIDE... maybe because it's totally the same mentality, attitude, and also somehow the same 'world-view'), hm, but all of this changes nothing when it comes to their first two full length albums and the mentioned 7'' EP, and especially "STAATSGEWALT" is nothing but a masterpiece, and also especially "TEARS OF YESTERDAY" is some damn stand-alone high quality Hardcore Punk anthem that knows not about too many potential rivals out there. So damn it, check it out!!!You get the song in a pretty cool live version (even the vocals lack some expression and emotion and power), played live in (I think) 2007 (?) in Germany live on stage on the at the "BATTLE OF THE SOUTH" festival, just that you know also about this hard facts of this pretty nice little video clip that's now coming for ya. So, yehp, like I've already said, now just you enjoy the clip and all and everything will be pretty fine;-).
