Not released off Bryon’s Kiss Of Death, this New Bruises split is off Jan Yo-yo’s German punk label. Bruises drops two steaming tracks of anti-establishment angst, continuing on the heels of Fugazi and Hot Water Music, while Offshore Radio lends its two tracks of bouncy garage rock. Plus the cool hand-drawn cartoony Bruises cover of severed limbs. What’s not to like?
