BAD FORM, THE: Self-titled: 7″EP

Sloppy, occasionally fast hardcore from these Jersey guys. I had to check where they were from, ’cause they sound like they coulda come outta San Francisco’s vats scene circa 1981/82. They got that raw hardcore sound popular in them parts, say like Capitol Punishment, early Condemned to Death or Sick Pleasure. The singer sometimes reminds me of the guy who fronted Long Beach’s Crewd, too. Good stuff here, even if it sent me on a weird nostalgic head-trip.
