Winter 2012 Reviews

Nomos Demo Great 82 style hardcore from this New York band. There are a lot of modern influences on this band’s demo including Cold Sweat, The Snobs, and other, hey, early 00 bands. I would like to hear more. Our Side Demo Really raw, late eighties, influenced hardcore in the vein of Release, Youth Of Today, and Four Walls Falling. With a better recording, I sense this band could be pretty good. I want to hear more. Pigsticker Demo I really like this demo. Pigsticker reminds me a cross between Circle Jerks and Necros with sloppy, raw, production values that sounds pretty authentic to the early eighties…

Reviews For The Week of July 18th

Talk Is Poison…one of the best bands of the past 15 years… State of Alert No Policy Bootleg LP This is a pretty complete bootleg LP with all of State of Alert’s recorded material. The No Policy 7” on Dischord, the tracks from Flex Your Head, two demos, and a live set. I’ve heard all of this before, but completeists will dig having all of this in one place. Why hasn’t Dischord done a discography for them already?   Various Artists Brutal Supremacy Compilation Double 7″ Painkiller Records The long awaited debut compilation from Painkiller Records does not let down.

Honor Role-1982

Honor Role 1982 7″ No Way Records This is a reissue of this Virginia band’s demo from 1982. This is a pretty typical record of the period. If you like early Dischord, Touch & Go, etc you’re gonna really like this. I’m glad this got a reissue, I’ve been looking for a good copy of it for years! Profit Prophets is my favorite song here. While it’s no Religious Vomit, it’s a great eighties style anti-religion/televangelist song. There aren’t enough songs about televangelists anymore.

Government Warning-No Way Out

Government Warning No Way Out 7” No Way Records I really like this record. Government Warning (great name!) play snotty early eighties styled hardcore in the vein of stuff like The Necros & Hated Youth. I could see myself listening to this one a lot. My favorite part of this record is how authentic to the 82′ style it is. I could figure this record for being outtakes from Flex Your Head or an unreleased Touch & Go record. The cover also looks like an early hardcore record. Check them out at the No Way Records website.
