Punk Rock legends THE EXPLOITED will be playing two shows in South Africa!
“Riot starting, bouncer bashing, cop baiting, hotel trashing, foul talking, noise making, chaos causing, venue wrecking, government hating, rulebreaking, unrelenting, punk rocking. Clearly we’re not talking about Pepsi adverts, or indeed the many so-called punk bands that would gleefully sell themselves to such corporate giants for a palm full of silver. Whoo-hoo! The taste of a generation! F#%k off! Let’s get one thing straight: The Exploited are not ‘punkers’ or any of the other cutesy, watered down, MTV friendly names you might want to call them.”
“F#%k The System’ their eighth studio album sees the band on more explosive form than ever, riotous, unrepentant and wholly uncompromising. Tracks like ‘Never Sell Out’ and ‘Chaos Is My Life’ (both self-explanatory) are as brutally heavy as anything bands half their age have to offer and prove beyond doubt that, not only is there life in the old dog yet, but this band’s got rabies! ‘F#%k The System’ isn’t just an album title; it’s a statement of intent. But then again, it is a punk rock album, and make no mistake…
