Good split. Two demented bands that complement each other without sounding similar. Coworkers play dynamic and chaotic hardcore with the occasional blastbeat. This would fit in well at a mid-’90s basement show, but the vocals, which are snarled as opposed to screamed, make the band stand out. Inerds blow through some crust with dustbuster/ nails-on-chalkboard vocals. The raw recording adds to the power. Now, here’s the question: Is the band name a crack on Mac geeks (iPod, iNerd…) or a Skynyrd-esque misspelling of “innards?” Either way, score. Awesome hand drawn cover art, to boot.
