My favorite hardcore band of all time hits one out of the ballpark with this infectious and quick EP. This band defines all that is just a straight up, bullshit-less hardcore punk band. No fashion, no gimmicks, and no fucking politics. Mark Sheehan delivers vocals like a punch in the face, and scripts lyrical message that's not too far from the 80's hardcore style, yet it's genuinely pissed off. Every time I throw this record on the turn table I want to smash everything in sight.
I love this band because in the 90's and early 00's, no one gave a fuck about hardcore, and they just kept playing it. Other 80's hc bands went on to do more experimental projects or sell out, etc. This band just kept playing genuinely pissed off hardcore punk, and never swayed apart from that in the two decades that they were a band.
RIP Mark Sheehan
