DEAN DIRG/ HENRY FIAT’S OPEN SORE: Split: 7″

Frenzied, trash-kicking mongoloid stompers from the idiot savant masters of the genre: Henry Fiat’s Open Sore (Sweden) and Dean Dirg (Germany.) Each band here plays three songs and each band does one song about the other band. HFOS does “The Dirg Never Sleep” and Dean Dirg does a ditty called “Don’t Make Fun of Henry Fiats Maybe They Are Really Retards,” which has, best as I can make out, references to HFOS’s famous velcro-strap footwear: the Mongo Shoe. I just wish the lyrics were printed out somewhere on the record cuz I bet there’s some pretty funny shit being yelled here. Regardless, this is top-notch tardcore and you’d be doing yourself a favor if you made room for it in your hi-fi record collection. File under: Big Dumb Mental Fun.
