The Last Conspirators

WARPARTY an album by former Morons/Ghostrunner frontman and songwriter Tim Livingston and his band THE LAST CONSPIRATORS. Ten cutting, socially-charged blasts, served up as a potent Molotov-cocktail of garagey-punk and soulful, electric-folk. ALL MUSIC GUIDE calls the Last Conspirators "a powerful rock & roll band whose sound fuses old-school punk, roots rock, and heartland rock, with fierce, often politically charged lyrics on top. The Last Conspirators are fronted by singer and songwriter Tim Livingston a pioneering figure on the punk scene in New York State's Hudson Valley." WARPARTY, a set of old-school rock & roll protest songs, was called by the TIMES UNION “ The most potent politically charged disc of the year, walking the tightrope between punk passion and polished professionalism.” THE BIG TAKEOVER MAGAZINE said: “I hear Love, ‘60s blues rock balladry, ballsy post-punk mashers like 80s Australians, and dexterous guitars that prove ballast for Livingston’s burning convictions like “American Son” and our in-foreclosure U.S. of “Innocent”. HARP MAGAZINE called it: “incisive and poetic... overall an engaging album “, while CHRONOGRAM said: “...a quartet that brings a welcome, Information Age crunch to the tough, melodic sounds of late ’70s/early ’80s Brit-punk; think The Clash, The Jam, maybe The Ruts or the UK Subs, but with slightly glossier production values and lyrics that take shots at the soul-sucking, high-tech Noughties.” GARAGE & BEAT MAGAZINE concurs, “60s psychedelia and '70s punk rage permeate this eclectic mix of angst rattled modern rock.”

A powerful rock & roll band whose sound fuses old-school punk, roots rock, and heartland rock, with fierce, often politically charged lyrics on top. The Last Conspirators are fronted by singer and songwriter Tim Livingston a pioneering figure on the punk scene in New York State’s Hudson Valley... true believers, keeping the rock & roll flame burning even if it may no longer be fashionable to do so.. coming across like an Americanized version of the Clash… the Last Conspirators.. waging war against complacency and cherishing the rebels and outsiders on the fringes of American culture. .. raging against the light, whether it's dying or burning bright.”
