IN DEFENCE / MOTHER SPEED: Split: 7"

Nov 16, 2010

In Defence devote their side to being pissed off at everything, and by everything I mean guyliner, ‘80s dance parties, and house guests who overstay their welcome. Not a single mention of tacos or pizza, just pure rage. I expected Mother Speed to counter In Defence’s anger with a bit of goofiness after listening to their first song, “A Boy and His Blob.” Although I’m still not sure whether it’s about the classic videogame, masturbation, or both, it’s hilarious. After that though, they get serious, even downright poetic on the last track: “Years go down like domestic brew, each empty can a reflection of you.” If you’re looking for good hardcore circa now, look here.
