THE WORK - Compilation [2018]

“... While punk rock might have ushered out the more gratuitous and dated aspects of prog and metal, introducing the musical world to a new generation of loud and exciting voices, post-punk would continue to offer more expanded options for reworking what rock music had become. With an eye to the more radical elements of late-60’s and early 70’s art practice, Tim Hodgkinson and The Work preserved that era’s aesthetic questioning, social consciousness, and do-it-yourself spirit, while helping to forward those agendas into a new and contemporary form of expression. Often as complex and compositionally challenging as prog could be, and at times brutal and uncompromising like early metal, The Work’s music offers an intriguing bridge by which to view how styles of the recent past updated their sound into an important new form. ”
