Crossing The Red Sea With The Adverts (2022 Reissue)
Released after an ever growing live following and the string of successful chart hits, The Advert's debut has cemented its place in punk rock history. From the sonic Armageddon which ushers in 'One Chord Wonders' through to the deliriously protracted fade of 'Great British Mistake', Crossing The Red Sea never put a foot wrong. Created at the height of Punk, recorded with all the venom and passion which gave the era such vitality, Crossing the Red Sea was at once a statement of intent and a bellow of defiance, a refusal to take anything for granted, even its own brilliance.
More than that, though, the album defined and thus became the precious moment in time when the establishment rules of rock fell away, and new ones still had to be carved out. And by those brittle standards, the Adverts weren't simply crossing the Red Sea, they were parting it.
