Tracks: 18
Time:  39 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:         Punk



















After six years of inactivity and complete silence, "Twenty-Seven" is the fifth studio album by The Adicts and of the best of its whole discography. Now I realize in 1992 nobody wanted to know nothing about this band and its music. But the true is we are in front of a very high quality work about melodic punk rock reffers. It was originally released by "Cleopatra Records" in the USA in 1992. It was re-released after by "Anagram Records" in 1993 and 1997, "Captain Oi! Records" in 2002 and also by "SOS Records" in 2006, each with bonus tracks. This edition here is from "Captain Oi! Records" and contains 20 tracks high recommended. For those who have still doubts, here below there is the whole album in video format (youtube). Enjoy it!

"Fifth overture"
Year:  1986
Country:  UK
City:  Suffolk
Label:  SL
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  12
Time:  36 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:         New Wave



















The Adicts are an English punk band from Ipswich, Suffolk, UK. One of the more popular punk rock bands in the 1980s, they were often in the indie charts during that decade. Their song "Viva La Revolution" was featured in the video game Tony Hawk's Underground. It was also featured in a commercial for the E! channel advertising their reality television show Pop Fiction. "Fifth Overture" is a studio album by The Adicts. It was originally released in Germany on SL Records (a division of Gama) in 1986. It was reissued by Captain Oi! in 2002 and included the tracks from the "Bar Room Bop" EP. The original record has become one of the Adicts' most sought after collector's items. The album had a quite controversy into the oi! / punk scene from the 80´s decade, because the band added to its sound several elements from the synth pop, techno pop and electronic music such as: keyboards, electronical drums, etc. In fact, is not a 100% oi! music album at all, but a new wave / punk-rock album. Nowadays, almost 30 years after, is even funny and curious to listen to The Adicts play this kind of music.

"this is your life"
Year:  1984
Country:  UK
City:  Suffolk
Label:  Fallout
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  15
Time:  36 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:         Punk



















We are in front of one of the best The Adicts album but the best. But the true is this not an official album, but a compilation of fifhteen tracks recorded from 1978 to 1980, just before its debut album "songs of prise". All songs were recorded at "Hillside Sound Studios" in London and they were some kind of demo or something like that. "Fallout Records" had the good idea in 1984 to colllect all these songs and to make a "serious" album with remastered sound, professional artwork and avaible on CD and LP format. We could to say this is a work quite underrated and almost forgot, but frankly this is a very very good album and highly recommended

"Sound of music"
Year:  1982
Country:  UK
City:  Suffolk
Label:  Razor
Format:  CD
Tracks:  13
Time:  32 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:         Punk




















Sound of Music is the second studio album by The Adicts. It was rereleased by Captain Oi! Records in 2002 and by SOS Records in 2006, each with different bonus tracks. In 2002, Taang! Records rereleased the album along with Smart Alex and bonus tracks as The Collection. The same Sound of Music disc with bonus tracks was released separately in 2004. Like the Undertones, Buzzcocks, and the Ramones, the Adicts' albums (and singles) have been filled with hook-laden mod pop punk songs that are hard to ignore. Unlike the Undertones, Buzzcocks, and the Ramones, the Adicts have remained one of the most critically underappreciated punk bands of their generation. Guitarist Pete Dee, drummer Kid Dee, bassist Mel Ellis, and vocalist Monkey have remained true to their vision and have mixed punk with theatrics and dynamics far more excitingly than any other band of their ilk. On this, their second full-length album, the band's musical personality gelled to the point of punk perfection, displaying a musical maturity and sharper songwriting skills than on their debut, Songs of Praise. Although they were, and still remain, a punk band at heart, this album shows them stretching their musical muscles a bit and experimenting within the punk framework. "Joker in the Pack" sports a nifty fiddle fighting for aural space with Pete's sonic guitar attack. "Disco" is a fun punkish take on the Sweet's "Ballroom Blitz." Acoustic guitars help propel the glorious single "Chinese Takeaway." One of the only missteps is the re-recording of their classic B-side, "Steamroller," which is not as exciting as the rollicking original. The CD reissue on Captain Oi features three bonus tracks, including covers of "You'll Never Walk Alone" (now one of their signature live songs) and "I Wanna Be Sedated" (which is pretty darn cool). A rare sophomore album that bettered the debut and paved the way for future adventurous releases. Worth the price of admission.

"Songs of praise"
Year:  1981
Country:  UK
City:  Suffolk
Label:  Cleopatra
Format:  CD
Tracks:  16
Time:  39 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:         Punk



















"songs of praise" is the debut studio album by The Adicts. It was originally released in 1981 on "Dwed Wecords" and was re-released by several labels as "Fall Out Records" or "Cleopatra". In 2008, the album was recorded again by the band and released as the 25th Anniversary Edition. Strictly musical maybe is the best next to "This is your life" and also is one of the albums closer to classic punk rock 1977 style and farest of new wave sound. Here below you can see the first and original cover of the album in "Dwed Wecords".
