Reissue of the Week: Flag of Democracy

FLAG OF DEMOCRACY – “Love Songs” EP
Ah yes, killer reish here of the second best record to ever emerge from the City of Brotherly Love. (YDI 7” is number one if you were curious.) Anyway, F.O.D. seems to have gotten an unfair shake on account of being a “funny band,” and for pressing on far past their peak, but this six-songer is prime, ’80s East Coast suburban, lawn-mowing, hardcore thrash at its finest, a perfect kindred spirit with ADRENALIN O.D. The hyper-speed, snappy thrashers that fill the grooves of this 7” are a crucial piece of the ’80s American hardcore puzzle that definitely need to be digested more than once if you fancy such things.
