KGB - Treblinka

Review by Elek Malcolm-Madill

Genre/s: Post-Punk, Garage Punk
For Fans Of: Grazhdanskaya Oborona, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Bauhaus

Originating from Spain in the 1980s, there really isn't much information I could find about KGB. They only seemed to record a handful of songs but seem to have been fairly popular in Spain, even performing on tv in a few youtube videos I found. Despite this, the band managed to produce some catchy, albeit extremely lo-fi post punk exhibited here on Treblinka- the only full album that I could find by the band. Opening strong with "Luftwaffe" the songs vary from fast and more punk leaning, to very 80s influenced electronic tracks, while still maintaining their post-punk element. KGB is great for fans of classic post-punk.
