Released by Union Records in 1988.
"Skincore" band from New York that was around in the late 80's glorydays of hardcore.
The band only released this one EP but recorded a couple of other songs to that never got released. The band consisted of Pete on vocals, Brian on guitar, Mike on bass and Jon on drums.
Thanks to Brian Welsh for sending me the EP.
Me and modern hardcore dont really go together at all but i often like the pre-90 hardcore bands that lacked in the noizy crust-department. This being one of them.
The sound they bring is hardcore but actually quite melodic though with Pete "Sketch" on vocals it sounds like a clusterfuck of brutality in a RACish sort of way.
The best song is by far the opening song Refusenik. Why dont they make hardcore like this anymore?
