Latest album, The Redemption of Zounds, released on Overground Records, available for download and on vinyl and CD.
"The 10 songs he (Steve Lake) has written for the new album retain all the hall marks of the classic template; incisive lyrics, sharp guitars, satirical overtones, emotional terror and great, memorable tunes. Yet it sounds totally at home in a modern world that, Steve claims, 'is as bewildering, absurd, tragic and joyful as it ever was'.
Crass made us use a
session drummer. It made us feel like the Beatles. It also made
us feel like frauds.

This was a complete fuck up

the Terrible', who we will love forever.

They said they were only going

The Curse of Zounds Plus (Broken Rekids/Ruggerbugger) CD compilation of all Zounds material.
Getting hold of some of the
masters for this was like getting blood out of a stone. It's remarkable
how some sections of the anarcho-record-biz have an unhealthy liking for
cash and a tendancy towards the petty. It's a shame.
Go All The Way EP

the long awaited second album, an album now wilfully abandoned. These
tracks were written by Steve as he watched the war in Iraq unfold on
'wide screen television'. Steve Lake and Lawrence
Wood play guitars, Steve sings Protag plays bass and Stick is on the drums. Goodnight
