Product Description

Review

"Like Mike Ness or Iron Cross' Sab Grey, onetime Morons frontman Tim Livingston has settled into punk-rock middleagedom : still capable of the two-minute flame-thrower, but also digging roots rock, harmonicas and the mid-tempo in general, with political insight ?you just don't have when you are 19... There's OG, Clash-ish punk rock, a John Cougar-Springsteen hybrid, artier 70's guitar rock and even a beach-party jam... incisive and poetic... overall an engaging album " -- HARP Magazine

"Longtime local scenesters will probably know Last Conspirators main man Tim Livingston. From 1979 to 1982 he fronted pioneering Capital Region punk outfit The Morons, which regularly held court to pogoing throngs at clubs like Bogie's and the Chateau Lounge and shared bills with top draws like The Cramps, The Stranglers, and, of course, Blotto. After The Morons burned out, Livingston returned with another project, Ghostrunner, which released one album, 1993's Beneath the Apocalyptic Rain, before calling it quits. But, as they say, you can't keep a good man down. Nearly 15 years later, Livingston is back with The Last Conspirators, a quartet that brings a welcome, Information Age crunch to the tough, melodic sounds of late '70s/early '80s Brit-punk; think The Clash, The Jam, maybe The Ruts or the UK Subs, but with slightly glossier production values and lyrics that take shots at the soul-sucking, high-tech Noughties. (Check out "Crash," brimming with grinding guitars and Livingston's hoarse, desperate vocals; or "Walking in Hellfire," a moody tour de force highlighted by some sweltering guitar leads.) Warparty, however, isn't just one rocker after another. The disc also features a handful of protest ballads, Dylan- and Arthur Lee-influenced tracks like the title cut and "American Son," a commentary on suburban alienation. Though The Last Conspirators formed as a studio-only enterprise, the group headlined a release party for the record in March. -- Chronogram Magazine

"On the Last Conspirators new CD, 'Warparty', the unflappably laid-back Tim Livingston sounds like he's unraveling a little; conjuring up a more deranged version of Mick Jones of the Clash. Trust me, that's a good thing, as are tunes like the mid-seventies CBGB's folk-rock of "American Son", the spacy guitar psychedelics of "Help", plus the ripping "Tribulation Blues" which recalls vintage Richard Hell & the Voidoids. And when's the last time you heard a song that reminded you of Arthur Lee's "Message to Pretty"? The title track does just that, at least to these ears. Best of all is "Crash". Other than the unavoidable reality that it's on a tiny Upstate NY indie with no distribution, this song has got hit written all over it. " -- Here 'Tis Magazine

THE TIMES UNION BEST CDS OF 2007 The Last Conspirators WARPARTY (Driving Rain) - " The most potent politically charged disc of the year, walking the tightrope between punk passion and polished professionalism." "Warparty" is a ferocious album, brimming with barbed, political protest anthems, set to a surprisingly varied musical attack.. The high energy of Livingston's punk days is still there for all to hear, but now there's more -- echoes of the New York Dolls, Little Steven, even Neil Young's Crazy Horse. "Rock 'n' roll keeps on rockin'." -- The Times Union The Times Union

Format: Audio CD
Great CD! Straight-ahead rock and roll combined with insightful, incisive lyrics.

Innocent is a stand out. It is a searingly poignant song that manages to be aching and exhilarating at the same time - and the segue into Tribulation Blues is my favorite moment on the album.

In a time of politically apathetic music, Warparty breaks ground as it speaks to the destructive ripple effects of war and America's collective loss of innocence - plus it just sounds great!
