Mad In England
Each consecutive Crown Court record has been an incremental improvement in songcraft and sonics. That being said, this is their tightest, toughest release to date. The Mad In England EP is a welcome continuation of elements from the instant classic Capital Offence LP, but steeped in some extra mean laddish swagger. “Mad in England” typifies the Crown Court sound, grabbing your collar out of the gate with barbed wire guitars and stomping drums that roughhouse through verse and chant for just over two minutes. The accompanying tracks are two bare-knuckle rippers that hit like you had it coming all along. This is classic Oi! done right with a Chiswick 'tude and across the board punk appeal.
