ABOLITIONIST / FOOLS RUSH: Split: 7”

Abolitionist: Fuck yeah! Remember how good Propagandhi was before they became a metal band? Well, Abolitionist reminds me a lot of that. This song is a bit less blatantly political (no “stick the fucking flag up your ass” moments) and the guitar work is a bit less complicated, but Abolitionist’s delivery is urgent and honest. This song is great. Fools Rush: I’m not at all opposed to wearing your influences on your sleeve, but, fuck, it’s like the guys took a photocopy machine to Against Me!’s first few records with this song. I’d be willing to give them another chance, but this song did not make a fan out of me.
