MISSING 23RD, THE: The Powers That Be: CD

Decent enough Cali hardcore from a band that’s been around awhile. Song subjects run the gamut of the expected topics (racism, jocks, etc.). Sounds good ’n’ all on the whole, but the recording is too “clean” for these ears, meaning I like my hardcore blessed with a sound less sanitized and a hell of a lot scruffier around the edges.
