ESCAPED, THE: Rose City Hardcore: CD

I’ve heard of New York City Hardcore, D.C. Hardcore, and even Mid-West Hardcore, but Rose City Hard Core? Cute. Good to see the Northwest represent. Standard old-fashioned kick-in-your-teeth hardcore from a Portland punk band, The Escaped. The dual-singer approach was original, but unfortunately the songs were uninspiring. At least give me a decent mosh, for christ’s sake! –Jason K
