FRONT LINE: Basic Training: 7” EP

Mar 27, 2012

I’d be lying if I said I liked this EP. It’s fairly undistinguished hardcore. Nevertheless, I appreciate its release. Basic Training is a collection of Front Line’s unreleased tracks from 1982. The back cover contains a photo of four American kids who played hardcore during Reagan’s years. That alone warrants a release. Churning out vicious music at the beginning of the worst American presidency of the twentieth century wasn’t for the uncommitted.
