Where's The Pope? - Straight Edge Holocaust MLP
Now let's get back to Australia. Here's another fine record, this time of Where's The Pope? from Adelaide.
The sleeve art probably caused some problems with the straight edge kids. It's a bit of a simplistic assault but understandable. While XXX kids were fulminating against peer pressure, some of them used the same tactic as well.
Where's The Pope? started in 1985 and were influenced by the US skatecore bands. 'Jesus Gets Rich' is an attack on religion, while 'There Goes The Neighbourhoood' is an ironic aproach towards the racism in Australian society.
Never heard their 2nd album 'Sunday Afternoon Barbeques' but it seems to be not that hardcore anymore.
This mini-album was the last release on Reactor Records in 1988.
