GOVERNMENT FLU: Fuck Poetics + Demo 2008: CD

Jan 11, 2011

The two 7”s collected on this CD by this band from Warsaw (it’s in Poland, dude) hark back to the sound of Boston hardcore circa 1997, but they spare us not only the Youth Of Today worship via the lyrics but also analogies to American football! The lyricist is angry and depressed, and over matters not as juvenile as whether somebody takes a drink or feeling some false sense of betrayal. If you are partial to the youth crew revival sounds of more than a decade past, but are turned off by superficial, privileged jock attitudes, check this out.
