Fuck Detector play an amalgam of L.A. hardcore, circa 1980. A lot of pre-Rollins Black Flag brattyness, with some Germs nihilism and Suicidal Tendencies menace. Three songs, from Fargo. The Budget are kinda sloppy and choppy and their music sounds more like a bunch of parts than songs. I’m guessing they’re a newer band who are still settling into things. Four songs, from Asheville.
