GOD EQUALS GENOCIDE / LIBYANS: Split: 7”

Three songs each from two clean guitar, woman singer punk bands. There’s an early L.A. hardcore thing going on, and Libyans bring the Germs and even X to mind. Their singer has one of those terrific scratchy-but-tuneful voices, like Annie from This Is My Fist. The vocals on God Equals Genocide’s first song are shrill and off-key and there’s far too much treble. Luckily, the next two songs are a little slower and punchy, with a second vocalist added in for dynamics. I want to hear more from both bands.
