Stiv (Stivart). Muito bom!
Since the first demo released in 2012, I've been following the work of Crutches and I like all the records. In 2015 the band released their best record so far. "FörlOAD" is an aggressive and noisy album, more intense than the other releases, both in political content as well as the musical chaos. On the political issue, Crutches wrote lyrics describing the situation in Europe (economic crises, the accession of fascism, governments working for banks, capitalism etc.) with which I can easily identify myself, because in a way is very similar to reality Brazilian society around me. All tracks are excellent, but I emphasize the song "Pissregn" because the lyrics was made by Alba (a child who is nine years old), a living proof of awareness and resistance. Regarding the cover art, I can say that rats are the animals most punk of this planet, because they live in hostile and unhealthy environments in search of survival and this great art was made by Stiv (Stivart). Very good!
