Above The City is the debut album by American punk rock band Smoke or Fire, released on May 22, 2005. Between 1974 and 1976 the movement now called. By late 1976, bands such as Television and the Ramones in New York City, the Sex Pistols, the Clash, the Damned in London, the Saints in Brisbane were recognized as forming its vanguard; as 1977 approached, punk became a major and controversial cultural phenomenon in the UK. It spawned a punk subculture expressing youthful rebellion through distinctive styles of clothing and adornment and a variety of anti-authoritarian ideologies.
This album, their first full-length, was co-produced by Fat Mike, quite a reference to get a band going. You get a nice mixture here of a high-geared Lawrence Arms/Against Me! rock-nonchalance mixed with a certain degree of melodic post-hardcore eagerness somewhere in line with the now-defunct Cadillac Blindside (.

Album Above the City. Where do I sleep tonight? And where did I leave my mind? I'll end up on the floor And these words will do just fine. I remember nights spent up on rooftops I remember bike rides in the rain We spray painted all their signs to what we wanted them to say But we got so far away. It was a matter of time between the age that we left reason And the day we chose to leave it I'd rather stop the beat then Fucking waste my life
