ABRAZOS: Self-titled EP: 7” Flexi

This is what happens when two zine editors (Suspect Device and Pea Brain) come together to knock out a bunch of songs. The result is nine tracks, which, on first listen, are like taking a time machine back to the 1980s, both in sound and lyrical content. It’s an amalgam of many bands of that era—predominantly Blitz and G.B.H.—and has a good mix of tunes and anger. Good stuff and worth checking out, especially for aficionados of the UK82 sound. –Rich Cocksedge (Suspect Device, suspectdevicehg@hotmail.com, suspectdevicezine.co.uk / Pea Brain)
