LIBYANS: Welcome to the Neighborhood: 7”EP

Oh, hell yeah. The title song is totally Dangerhouse 1978 via Boston 2008. It’s first wave punk that’s a loose, flapping, and exposed wire. Dangerous sparks leap. “Welcome to the Neighborhood” is raw and melodic and reminds me of The Bags. Very cool. The two tracks on the flip are harder and faster, like 1980, and it’s comforting to see a band not care about the totally erasable, largely made-up division between punk and hardcore, playing both with equal levels of quality and conviction.
