Too Much Resistance – Nude Red

Too Much Resistance – Nude Red (Don’t Google the band name)

Forces Favourites by Various Artists

Forces Favourites by Various Artists

Very little is known about the band Nude Red. Well, very little is known by me. In fact, all I know is that they are called Nude Red and their song ‘Too Much Resistance’ featured on the classic compilation album ‘Forces Favourites’ which was put together by Shifty Records in conjunction with the End Conscription Campaign.

I also know that ‘Too Much Resistance’ is an energetic, sax fuelled three minute and fourteen seconds of pure pleasure. The song bounces along on a bed of punk ska beats with a joie de vivre that makes you happy to know a few French phrases. Unfortunately it is all over far too soon, leaving you wanting more. I don’t know if there was any more to be had from Nude Red. I’m sure it would be worth hearing if there is.

Where to find it:

Forces Favourites – Various Artists (1986), Shifty Records (SHIFT10)

Lyrics (with apologies for any mistakes):

So much to do
Too much to say
So much to do
Too much to say

Clowny Frowns has lost his crown
In the days of certainty
Freedom lurked behind the mask
Condemned to obscurity

Five years for instigation
Keep control of the population
Don’t need no edification
Just don’t see the justification
There’s
Too much resistance

So much to do
Too much to say
So much to do
Too much to say

Mad man laughs he rides first class
On the wheels of destiny
Its hard to believe what you could see
In the 20th century

Five years for instigation
Keep control of the population
Don’t need no edification
Just don’t see the justification
There’s
Too much resistance

So much to do
Too much to say
So much to do
Too much to say

Clowny Frowns has lost his crown
In the days of certainty
Freedom lurked behind the mask
Condemned to obscurity

Five years for instigation
Keep control of the population
Don’t need no edification
Just don’t see the justification
There’s
Too much resistance
