Genre/Influences: Post-punk, punk-rock.

Background/Info: 1919 were active in between 1980 and 1983. They released one album and one EP. They got reactivated in 2014, but unfortunately one of the founding members passed away. He however incited his mates to move so this album might be seen as homage to Mark Tighe.

Content: “Futurecide” is driven by fast rhythms, rapidly evoking the good-old years of punk music. It’s not just punk, but also a rock-minded album. The songs are pretty short and often moving into carrying choruses.

+ + + : This album is a noticeable production in the contemporary post-punk style and that’s for sure because of the real 80s spirit this band has been originally driven by. The guitar parts will please the lovers. They’ll go mad for the speed-tempo of the drums and the enraged vocals of the band’s front man.

– – – : Post-punk without real pretension, but just an album to have fun with! There are only 10 songs featured at the album.

Conclusion: 1919 is pure nostalgia for all post-punk freaks. It reminds me of the first concerts I ever saw as a teenager.

Best songs: “Speak Now”, “Man, Myth, And The Cruise Of The Immortal”.

Rate: (6½).
