MOTHERSPEED / RETARD STRENGTH: Split: 7″

Motherspeed: Skate punk that reminded me of Stalag 13 and RKL merging into Voetsek. Two original punk numbers that keep up with any other skate punk out there on a mix tape. Energetic with a good and raw garage feel of bands from the past. Closing things out are two covers of the Circle Jerks that hold true to the original versions. Retard Strength: Straight forward ‘80s punk rock that has a very demo tape feel to it. Would like to see this band live or recorded in a better studio to make a judgment. Sounding like a live recording turns me off real quick.
