After several tours and single shows there comes a new MiniCD from REJECTED YOUTH from Nuremberg as a warm-up for the upcoming longplayer. And what a warm-up. Musically more ripened than ever before and textual the trio is already known for thoughtful lyrics. The catch-phrase for this record is NO POLICE STATE COALITION which was chosen in regard to actual repression and court procedure that also hit friends of ours and increasing police brutality. Also due to state authorities that aimlessly take actions against everything that doesn’t fit into their perfect society and is posing a threat to the general public since September 11, 2001. Actions that are only cutting down the rights of individuals and slowly but surely create a surveillance state… 3 new songs, the AWESOME CBGBS 7” on CD for the first time and a video for the title track are on this silverpiece in a neat DigiPack. It’s worthwhile! 8 songs. 1 Videotrack.
“It can’t be that in a free democratic republic, central intelligence agencies for secret service and police are installed, which has been impeded after 1945 to prevent a new Gestapo. That every foreigner is generally suspicious of being a terrorist. That laws are issued to allegedly protect the inner security, laws that never would have passed without the fear of attacks. That tapping phone lines is a common procedure which has increased in frequency by 10 percent last year, to 22.000 operations. That the constable turns into a violent bully, and so on, and so on. Repression and surveillance only creates a false appearance of safety and bestows us Pyrrhic victories at most. No Police State Coalition. Not in Germany, Europe, USA or anywhere else.” REJECTED YOUTH August 10, 2004.
