Abolitionist is a band that I got into through this very zine. I think it’s no secret that these guys dig Propagandhi a lot. I do too, but I have to be honest. I like this quite a bit more than the more metal output from the Winnipeg legends. Oddly enough, I am hearing some more obscure Canadian influences in the mix here too. I’m not sure exactly why that is, but I am reminded at times of Trigger Happy (of Toronto) and Furnaceface (of Ottawa) as well. I don’t expect anyone to understand, but you should know that it is a big compliment coming from me. This album is getting a lot of play around here and I look forward to the chance I get to see them live. –Ty Stranglehold (1859, 1859records.bandcamp.com)
