15. System breakout (Live 1994)
16. CDMFSOB (Bad posture cover Live 1994)
Released by Skinhead Records in 2010 (not the British label).
A sharp-band from Chicago that supposedly has been around for atleast 16 years now but still i dont know a single soul who has ever heard about them except me. This makes it quite hard to make a bandinfo based on that.
The record was released and recorded by Natassja from Bleach battalion and has that echoing feeling that works so well for her band. It works anything but fine for this band though and the whole record leaves a bad feeling that might explain why no one has ever heard of the band during their 15 year career. Some songs reminded me about old NY bands but only in the way that the NY bands like Oxblood did it soooo much better.
I love underground bands with a dirty sound and some of the bands i review demo's from dont sound much better than this stuff but the only differance is that these bands have been together for about 2 years and they release demo's not fullprice CD's.
I think it's the singer that really gets to me and all the "droogy clockwork orange" bullshit and screamocrap stuff aside it's his complete lack of skills that makes me pissed when listening to this recording (serously listen to track number 13 and tell me you dont want to shut him up).
I dont go out hard towards punkbands anymore since i cant even ride on a small horse let alone a high one. Dont want to hurt anyones feelings or talk shit about any band but:
The record was recorded in 2010 by people that has been playing since 1994. This means that they must be atleast 35 something years old and if nobody in even the underground scene knows you i think its time to throw in the towel or atleast take some time to play punk properly.
Download the album and see for yourselfs what i mean. The score is increased one additional point for the advanced and artisticly creative album-cover though.
