GRUDGES, THE: Self-titled: 7”

Side A of this extra heavy (as in weight, not content) record has two songs done at breakneck speeds, reminiscent of extremely fast Minor Threat or Black Flag songs. Side B has slower, more mediocre punk. According to the insert, the record label made 109 pink, 110 blue, 99 lime, 221 heavy black vinyl, along with 25 alternate sleeves and 14 super secret special editions. This 7” isn’t bad, but to me it’s not groundbreaking enough to wow a record label into warranting the production of all of these different versions. Whatever floats your boat, I guess.
