Big Takeover Magazine Reviews the New Album!

Big Takeover Magazine 's Editor In Chief Jack Rabid reviews the new album! The national "bible" of independent music has this to say : "A lot of lip service is paid to “rock ’n’ roll,” but some people really do have it in their veins, not just on their t-shirts. Tim Livingston has led this Hudson Valley, NY band for four albums starting with 2007’s Warparty, and they’ve got the backbeat, scratchy guitars, and sweaty groove that differentiates detached dilettantes from loving lifers. Beyond a mix of mostly mid-tempo styles, he and co-Conspirator (couldn’t resist that) Nick Bisanz especially succeed when striking a timeless pub rock-ian pose, on the smacking opener “Perfect Lovers in a Complicated World,” manic closer “Look at Me One More Time,” and streamlined “Russian Eyes” and “Fortune Teller”—with the R&B bite of Ducks Deluxe, 101ers, and closer to Albany, New London, CT’s Reducers. Speaking of those 101ers, there’s also plenty of Joe Strummer slur/pep in Livingston’s vocals. That’s a thought he always holds." 
Thank you Jack!!!

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.”
