NO – “Treating People Like They Don’t Exist” MLP
These Londoners have really outdone themselves this time. While I whole-heartedly enjoyed the self-titled 12” on Static Shock, this record is definitely the next level. The recording here is much akin to “the lunatic ravings of a one-off man-mental!” Somehow the guitar has this brittle clean tone clarity while still being completely overdriven. The bass and drums are heavier than an anvil dropped onto a baby grand and still retain precision and punchiness. On top of all that is this completely feral, animalistic, snarling vocal. All of this alone would make a good record, but it is the totally inventive songwriting that makes this a great record. One more reason UK hardcore is back on the map…with a vengeance. Do yourself and your neighbors a favor. (Jon Kortland)
