FORMALDEHYDE JUNKIES: Self-titled: tape

The return address on this envelope said, “Andy Peterson’s Arme.” Come on, that’s pretty fucking rad! As for the music, uh… I can’t really hear it. It sounds like it might be good, abrasive, skateable, early ‘80s hardcore if they record it better. I mean, I don’t usually bag on production values, but holy shit, the bass drum sounds like a pan of Jiffy Pop and it’s louder than all the other instruments combined. It sounds worse than the Mummies stuff where they just set down a tape recorder in the middle of their practice space. But in the picture, one of them is wearing a Jerry’s Kids shirt, so you’ve got to give them credit for that.
