DIRECT CONTROL: Self-titled: 7”

Man, what I wouldn’t give to see these guys on a double bill with Out Cold. Balls-on hardcore here with lyrics touching upon familiar subjects: corrupt politicians, drug abuse (the smokin’ “Hardcore for Heroin”) and life in a shitty town. The next time someone asks me why I insist on subjecting myself to bad music month after month, I’m gonna pop this on the turntable to illustrate how sweet it is when a really good record comes along, ‘cause although it may not be wholly original in concept, this one is nonetheless a stunner.
