The Shape Of Punk To Come

The Shape Of Punk To Come, by Swedish band Refused, completely passed me by when it was originally released , however I gave it a listen recently and was completely blown away by the unique sound. Check it out, still sounds as fresh today as it did in 1998.

Track listing:

  1. Worms of the Senses / Faculties of the Skull
  2. Liberation Frequency
  3. The Deadly Rhythm
  4. Summerholidays Vs. Punkroutine
  5. Bruitist Pome #5
  6. New Noise
  7. The Refused Party Program
  8. Protest Song ’68
  9. Refused Are Fucking Dead
  10. The Shape of Punk to Come
  11. Tannhäuser / Derivè
  12. The Apollo Programme Was a Hoax
