CHEMICAL : System Error: CD

Jan 19, 2012

Thirty years ago, I would’ve dismissed this as fairly by-the-numbers U.K. punk stuff. These days, however, their sound, and obvious attention to the current state of the world, is a bit more uncommon than it once was, so this comes as a bit of fresh air when put against the piles of their peers who spend their time making hollow shouts at rebelling against an amorphous systems and getting drunk. While the recording quality is still pretty rough, it is definitely an improvement over the last release I remember hearing by ‘em, which I guess you could say is progress.
