42 FORD PREFECT: Self-titled: LP

Wow, by my reckoning, this is the first time I’ve run into glow-in-the-dark vinyl. The band member trading cards were also a nice touch. Musically, this bounces between Northern California vats punk and Midwestern hardcore with, as Donny Osmond would say, “a little bit rock’n’roll” veined through thrashy beats, brittle guitars, and raw production. They seem to be enjoying themselves and it comes across on wax.
