GUNS, THE: Attack: CD

Jan 18, 2007

This band has some long roots in the Cleveland hardcore scene, circa ‘84-‘86 to be exact, and it appears that this CD is a rerecording of some of their tunes from that period. The resulting songs are white-hot, heavy-duty gems that could’ve given the best of that bygone era a run for their money. Anthems abound, especially “I’m Not Right,” which would’ve been my fuckin’ theme song at sixteen had I known it existed. Some quick poking around the Internet reveals that one of the members went on to play drums for Government Issue and, more importantly, there’s an album’s-worth of tracks from 1984 out there somewhere. Here’s hoping that those make it one to disc in the very near future, too.
