CHEMICAL THREAT: Vicious: CD-R

Another collection of mid-tempo, early ‘80s U.K.-influenced punk from these cats. Better production than the last thing I heard from ‘em, but they keep their packaging and their attitudes firmly in the DIY camp, with direct, no-frills punk married to pointed barbs about religion, media-needy celebs, and assholes of various stripes in positions of power. What they may lack in the “wildly original” department they make up for in sincerity, which ain’t hay.
