HARD STRIPES: Self-titled: 7”

This excellent throwback NYHC-influenced 7” is the first from the new Richmond band Hard Stripes. Released by the folks at Richmond’s fantastic record store Vinyl Conflict, this record is sure to turn the heads of people into classic, straightforward hardcore. As if the 1990s and 2000s never happened, this record well captures the 1980s tough guy sound, minus the bullshit tough guy mentality.
