Imagine two dogs, one either side of a fence; both animals are mightily pissed off as they’ve been left in the sun with no food or water and, as a result, they are making a hell of a racket. To add to this situation there’s bad blood between the beasts, which only adds an element of rage to the on-going furor. That is what this split release is like—on one side, Polish band Government Flu is snapping away at a fair pace with an obvious nod towards an ‘80s USHC sound, whilst on the other, the Americans, Poison Planet, add a bit more grit and sludge to the mix with hints of Black Flag infusing its four songs. This 7” is fast, furious, and should not be taken lightly.
