MONGREL: Fear, Lies, & Propaganda: CD

Oct 02, 2008

It’s 4/4 hardcore punk with a non-ironic cheese metal flourish. It reminds me of when some of those U.K.-‘82-type bands like The Exploited or GBH started sneaking more and more cock rock into their sound as the ‘80s progressed. I just fired up my time machine and went back to the mid-‘90s to ask high school me what he thought, and he said he’d ask his mom to sew a Mongrel patch onto his hoodie if and only if they played an all ages show in town for no more than five bucks, and they found a label that didn’t make them put explicit lyrics warning stickers on their albums like a bunch of herbs.
