HEALTH PROBLEMS: A Glut of Plastic: Cassette

May 28, 2014

It took two of four songs for me to realize that there is no guitar on this album. I didn’t miss it. As a guitar player, I didn’t even take it personally. We’ve had our share of spotlight. Besides, the superior musicianship, riffage, and controlled chaos created by David Dempsey on drums and Dan Shaw on bass is enough to please the ears and keep the brain alert. Vocalist Ian Kurtis Crist does a mix of hardcore vocals and spoken word with thoughtful lyrics. He’s got a real presence that is working overtime to keep up with the band, but succeeding nonetheless.
