DISCO ASSAULT: Saturday Night Bleeder: 7″

Since trends seem to go full circle, there has been a resurgence of early ‘80s-influenced hardcore bands in the last few years. Some have been brilliant, some mediocre. This band from Windsor, Canada seems to be doing it right. Nice, raw production and songs that charge forth but also have an infectious melody to them. The vocals have an Ian MacKaye delivery that punches through the music. This is straight-up punk rock with no fluff or overproduction. Good stuff. Funny note: I thought my record was messed up because it kept slowing down. I turn around to look at the turntable and my youngest cat kept putting his paw on the spinning slip mat that the record was on. Cats are so easily entertained.
