ANTISEEN / HE WHO CANNOT BE NAMED: Split: 7”

Fans of The Dwarves and ANTiSEEN aren’t the only people who will get a kick out of this split. ANTiSEEN overcame major tragedy by forging on after the death of guitarist Joe Young, with their recent recordings and live shows being just as potent as anything they’ve done previously. This four-song split includes three originals and an ANTiSEEN cover of Rupture’s “If I Had a Thousand Dollars.” The He Who Cannot Be Named side is super poppy and fun, making both sides essential. He Who Cannot Be Named ought to release more solo material, as it’s all kicked major ass so far. As is always the case with Rusty Knuckles, the packaging is first rate, and it’s on colored vinyl. This split comes highly recommended. –Art Ettinger (Rusty Knuckles, rustyknucklesmusic.com)
