GBH - City Baby Attacked by Rats (1982)

GBH, along with Discharge, came exploding out
of the streets with an unholy mix of punk, hardcore,
metal and hard rock.

Generations of people take this sound for granted
but in '82 it seemed to be so new and fresh, uniting
punks and rockers in a way not seen since Motorhead
in '77/'78.

All these songs are 3 minutes bursts of aggression,
with the guitars crunching through the riffs, like a
chainsaw with a Gibson.

This album was the band recording their live set at
the time with no frills or major overdubs, giving it
a raw feel.
