DEAD TREND: False Positive: CD

Jul 24, 2013

Dunno a thing about ‘em, but if the information I’ve managed to find is correct, this is the debut release from old New England hardcore band who have apparently decided to record twenty-four years of back songs in a marathon seven-hour session. Twenty-one tracks of sloppy, rudimentary hardcore is the result, with ranting about Iran-Contra, cops, skateboarding, the invasion of Grenada, and working for minimum wage, among other things. Whether it’s sincere or a piss-take a la Anarchy 6 I’ll leave for others to decide, but, either way, they’re pretty much on the bean.
