HEX: Poison in the System/The Demos: CD

Jan 19, 2016

A collection of four demos from a Sunderland anarcho punk band founded in 1984 and containing future members of HDQ and Leatherface, to name a few. It’s another one of those instances when one gets to hear the growth of a band brimming with ideas—things start off with an odd mix of Conflict and post-punk and blossom into driving post-punk with some great guitar work by the time things wind down to the last three tunes. Good stuff.
