A band railing against Mrs T and her evil minions, New Model Army produced a fine five track 12'' and the album Vengeance on the Abstact label during the dark days of 1984. Singing about broken communities, the miners strike, Falklands, vigilantes and Christian fundamentalism, this is heavy political stuff. It's angry lyrics are set to a soundtrack of funky bass lines, spacey guitar and military precision drumming. I think the 12” is especially good value as it has four non-album tracks including the excellent 1984, which out-Orwells Orwell in its pessimism, and Great Expectations, an ode to failure that seemed to be aimed directly at me.
This does have fond memories for me, I certainly played it regularly in the mid-eighties, and as the bad times seem to be with us again, it has a zeitgeisty feel about it. Prices are still ridiculously cheap for these two vinyls, and the later NMA major label albums can still be picked up for a fiver.
