FRACAS: Hurt on the World: CD

Warning! Pigeonholing ahead! Based on the sight and sound of Fracas, I’d lump them in with bands such as the River City Rapists and the Bulemics who seem to be overly concerned with convincing the listener that they are, in fact, a bunch of hedonistic ne’er-do-wells. As is often the case with such bands, there appears to be such an all-out effort in this regard that the record loses its sincerity. I mean, I like it and everything, but it falls well short of the gold standard set by the Dayglo Abortions for this type of fare.
