ANTICITIZEN: Warmachine: CDEP

I just reviewed an international comp in this issue where this band had the standout track. This is real throwback gear to the ’90s Squat or Rot days of NYC with bands like Public Nuisance, Jesus Chrust, and the like—head to toe in studs and spikes, belting it out in some hellhole in the Lower East Side. It’s spiky punk, but with a raw, drunken edge and anti-war lyrics. Pretty sloppy but I can dig after a 40oz. –Tim Brooks (Wiseass, anticitizen.storenvy.com)
