DE KIFT: De Dag: 7”

May 20, 2014

De Kift is punk-flavored to be sure, but would probably be more properly described as experimental, or non-standard or, dare I say it, punk-progressive. The tunes on this record were originally recorded in 1988, which makes sense now that I look at the liner notes, because De Kift remind me of the somewhat experimental punk sound that arose in the mid- to late-’80s with bands like Th’ Inbred and such in response to the snooze-fest that hardcore was becoming at that time.
