Mižerija’s demo struck us with its rebellious attitude, infectious melancholic vibes and heavy pop sensibilities. On first listen, the band evokes some early BOYE/KAOS demos, but it’s charged with both a strong punk attitude and a breeze of modern dark pop/post punk freshness. If you like the melancholic and catchy sides of UK anarcho punk and ex-YU post-punk/new-wave, we suggest that you do not sleep on Mižerija. There are some noisy moments here that recall the “Yes Sir I Will” CRASS era, there’s a Honey Bane style shouted femme vocal thing going on and there are also some danceable aspects in the rhythm, which we totally adore! This is anarcho-pop wrapped up in barbed wire and updated for the new dark ages!
Take notice that on this vinyl demo pressing you also get to hear one extra song from the same recording session.
Each record comes with screenprinted cover, risographed insert and xeroxed lyrics sheet with english translation.
