Paranoid Visions take inspiration and sound from the early 1980s anarcho punk movement spearheaded by Crass. I can hear a hybrid punk sound from the likes of Flux Of Pink Indians and Conflict and the streetwise rock n roll of the likes of the UK Subs and Sham 69. ‘When…?’ is a well rounded, powerful album packed with loud punk protest songs and a professional sounding production to boot. The title track starts and ends the album and, along with “Join The Dots” captures the very best of the music and the collaboration between Paranoid Visions and Steve Ignorant as anarcho punk royalty.
To celebrate its release Steve Ignorant will join the band to perform the album in its entirety at the Boston Arms, London on Saturday 9th November supported by former Crass recording artists Zounds & The Cravats.
