I don´t know this version, but a thing I know: Driller Killer is great.

It´s interesting how the sound has evolved each release and better and better. And without proselitical political bullshit lyrics. Only the punk and the reality.

The 4Q Mangrenade CD is one of topper releases of all times and the Split w/ ENT also is amazing. If DK stay this line in your next releases gonna be fast, fucked and furious as fuck!

I´m working in a new zine called Ashen and I send a DK interview for Christ, for first number. I´m still waiting, but will be very good.

Cheers man!!

Dear Anonymous and Chris,

Of course, all decisions you take in your day-to-day has something political, as well as your ideas, thoughts and opinions. Being against fascism, authoritarianism, racism, etc., are attitudes with political backing. Choose products that you will consume has something political. Every attitude has something political, in the deep. This is natural, take decisions is the day-to-day.

When I talk of politics, itself, I am speaking of ideology (communism, anarchism, Marxism, etc.), of political doctrine, of to try to make people think the same way as you (this is proselytism). I think have a critical view of reality is extremely healthy for the punk and is natural to any head that really think.

As say the Romanian thinker Emile Cioran: "In itself, the whole idea is neutral or should be so, but the man animates it, project in it your flames and dementias; impure, transformed in belief, it insere itself in the time, it take the form of event: the passage of the logic to the epilepsy is consummated... So be born the ideologies, the doctrines and the bloodthirsty farces."

Cheers!

hey its me the anonymous who wrote above...

being political doesn't mean you are just a robot to obey your leader. being critical is aways a plus,this is clear but being political apart from practicing in your daily life the ideals you carry inside also means in the way of Think global,Act local thinking, you can be involved in social acts as member of some political/social/whatever groups. By rejecting
all ideologies what's left to believe in? Nihilism? no you probably do not mean that. But what i want to say is that making a eclectic self-made "ideology is nothing but a self-centered ideology raising walls in parts of other ideologies creating a narcistic point of view (something very common in extreme leftwing groups)and criticism is the only think thats left for you.

we are all products of the environment we live in and we are influenced by our experience or education and try to explain the society and its changes according to the ideals we believe in. but these ideals are already spoken before, they come from the past we don't have to be monolithic against them but we have to dive into them and find the answers.we can judge them or be critical or reject some but not all of them

and this thing "preaching" you wrote about is nothing but a few words between the songs sometimes related to the lyrics of the songs.
Talking about how media manipulate the majority of people or the death of rain forest is proselytism? this is just an effort to aware and inform the people and not "preaching",what the bands supposed to talk about between the songs? about how many beers the drink each day or about their balls?
