I looked at the CD, I listened to the music. I would have sworn that this was a long-forgotten band from U.K. circa 1982 or ‘83. I was wrong. They are from Oakland and are circa now. With a little bit of internet researching I found out that some of the members have played in bands such as Filth, Neurosis, and Dystopia. I’ve never been a follower of those bands, but I know many who are. I think those same people would like Kicker. Hell, I really like Kicker. It’s angry. Like, really fucking angry! Sometimes life makes you need to smash shit. This is your new soundtrack to that.
