KILL THE HIPPIES / WE MARCH: Split: 7” EP

Kill the Hippies: The opening track was a nice bit of punk rock with just the right amount of obnoxiousness. The second track, “Use It up,” wasn’t quite as cool, but “Banality” pepped things right back up. We March: These guys continue to plunder the very best parts of the gray area between trash rock and early Midwest hardcore. “Rotten Goods” could easily have been snuck onto the first Fix record and no one would notice, while the second tune, “Bloodlines,” would find a nice home on an early Necros set list. Nice split, this one.
