Vinyl LP pressing. 2011 album from the British Anarcho-Punk band. A notorious recluse, songwriter and lead singer Steve Lake has reunited Zounds only intermittently since the band's early '80s heyday, despite receiving numerous requests to record and tour. The ten songs he has written for the Redemption of Zounds retain all the hallmarks of the classic template: incisive lyrics, sharp guitars, satirical overtones, emotional terror and great, memorable tunes. It sounds totally at home in a modern world that Lake claims 'is as bewildering, absurd, tragic and joyful as it ever was."
