NASTY, THE: Primitive Motive: LP

No-frills hardcore punk that looks back to the past, but sounds very much in the present. The songs range from fast to mid-tempo, with time changes throughout, as well as being catchy on top of it all, without being wimpy. Part of the appeal of this record is how the vocalist’s voice cracks in the songs. He’s shouting along and here and there his voice cracks and sounds worn out. The drums hit hard and direct, and the guitar has a nice thick and heavy sound that fills the room. They appropriate the Black Flag logo on their lyric sheet, which looks more corny than “cool.” Aim higher! Other than that, not a bad record.
