Blitz- “Second Empire Justice” LP
Released a year after Voice of a Generation, for their second full-length Blitz featured a new line-up and an about-turn change of sound – moving towards the darkwave/post punk of Joy Division, Magazine and The Chameleons. A brave and bold step that lost them a lot of their fanbase among the youthful punks and skins; and unfortunately, because of the association with the punk/Oi! scene, it was also overlooked by the serious-minded and elitist NME snobs. Thus, a cult album of the future was born, and 36 years later – with this style and sound is so popular and influential around the world – it is no suprise that this has become a post-punk archeological treasure.
