'The third part in Jupitter-Larsen's series of old trade union / battle songs follows Internationale (Banned Production 2010) and Solidarity CD (Banned Production 2010). Written by the Viennese lyricist and essayist Fritz Brügel, presumably in the late 1920s, this piece deals with the events during the so-called July Revolt in the capital of Austria on July 15, 1927, caused by a court verdict which acquitted three members of the right-wing Frontkmpfervereinigung Deutsch-Österreichs (the same persons were responsible for the death of a man and an eight-year-old the same year). The palace of justice went up in flames, at least eighty demonstrators were shot dead by the police, more than six-hundred people were injured. The stage was set for a fascist takeover in Austria. Jupitter-Larsen's two renditions are crude, P.E.-ish, vocal-heavy. One side with the original German lyrics, one side with the lyrics translated into English. Double-sided full-color sleeve, lyrics included. Edition of 250.'
