MACHO BOYS: Toughest Band in Hardcore: CS

Oh bless these Northwest punks with their cassette cover looking like a three-year-old drew it. The same girl who drew the cover may be singing for the band, too. Tinpot drums, buzzsaw guitars, and the aforementioned bratty three-year-old on vocals. This is what suburban teenage punk should sound like. U.S. hardcore mixed with Vice Squad. I love it! Turns out some of these cats are in their thirties! Keeping it real!
