KGB, THE: Self-titled: 7”EP

Funny what celebrity will getcha. Here we have a decent but otherwise nondescript hardcore band from the ‘80s with members of Reagan Youth and Nausea among its ranks. The selling point here, though, is that their drummer was none other than Saturday Night Live/Portlandia celeb Fred Armisen. Sound is garage demo quality, dropouts and all. The songs aren’t bad and hint that the band might’ve turned into something a bit more head-turning in its own right had it survived a bit longer, but this is otherwise wholly unremarkable.
