KILLER DREAMER: Self-titled: 12”

Killer Dreamer have been squonking out their brand of SoCal punk for years now, yet they never get the credit or attention they deserve. This new record might finally get them that attention. Thirteen tracks of raw, classic hardcore just like the Circle Jerks or Black Flag woulda played it way back in the day. These guys hail from San Pedro, the town that gave the world the Minutemen and Toys That Kill, to name a couple. In that respect, Killer Dreamer has some pretty big shoes to fill, and do a spectacular job of it. Excellent artwork, too: crazy silkscreens and spraypaint and hand-stapled labels. It’s a beautiful little testament to DIY. Get this record!
