Mayday is an imprint under the auspices of Montreal's Union Label Group. Dedicated to Oi! Knuckleheadthe Class AssassinsCleats, and the Generatorz all turn in multiple performances typified by lead vocals that are snide and swaggering, acerbic or angry; shoutable choruses that get the lads riled up; hammering, power chord verses; and stirring lead guitar salvos.
It's possible to say the sound is formulaic, that's it's been Media Control - Various - Mayday: An All-Canadian Oi! And Streetpunk Compilation before. Of course, it's also possible for a boot heel to wander its way into your septum. Take Mayday for what it is -- raw anthems with purposely blunted dimensions, designed to profess unity, spur action, or raise consciousness.
Do this, and the album's 25 tracks from 15 groups -- The Summer Day Reflection Song - Donovan - Colours established, some not -- will definitely raise a few fists in your crew. Find yourself unaffected by the rousing punk'd cover of Gordon Lightfoot 's "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" -- an obvious yet thoroughly believable shout-out to Mayday's staunchly Canadian stance -- and Mayday just isn't for you.
