This Ohio-born split from Cleveland’s Cruelster and short-lived Columbus outfit Putrid Cause is an exercise in classic fuck you hardcore. Pressed on baby shit green wax and wrapped in Cruelster bassist Nathan Ward’s distinctly DIY zine-esque packaging, this limited release instantly communicates its aim. Nary a single song on the record passes the two minute mark—including Cruelster’s amped-up cover of the Ramones’ “Freak of Nature”—but each one is packed with enough misanthropy, rage, and social unrest to leave any fan of old school hardcore aching to run into the pit wielding a pool ball in a sock.
