FASTPLANTS / DANIEL WAXOFF: Split: LP

The Pat Wachter Bowl is a skate contest held annually in a suburban rednecky public park thirty minutes south of my city. While it has age brackets, the main focus of this contest is the “Over 40” category. Fastplants are a fitting soundtrack. Simple lyrics (who needs depth when you can’t hear them over grinding concrete), an eighteen-year-old’s attitude (plus twenty-two more years of legal drinking), and a song solely about Jeff Grosso. It rocks. It rolls. It rock and rolls over the pool lip. It’s incredible. The Daniel Waxoff logo reminds me of Nuclear Assault’s logo. I loved Nuclear Assault in high school. I love Nuclear Assault. Nuclear Assault. –Matt Seward (Beer City, beercity.com)
