Polynesiankid Polynesiankid CD

A solid slab of ’80s-inspired hardcore skate punk inspired by the likes of BLACK FLAG and BAD BRAINS. I couldn’t find too much info on the band, but they are Tokyo-based, had a demo in 2021, and recently released this, their first full-length. There are some great tracks here, my favorite being the surfy “Mentos Coke,” which kind of sounds like the DEAD KENNEDYS in its intro. Overall, I have no complaints; it’s quick, it’s straightforward, and it sounds like the band had a good time recording it.
