NOISE ATTACK / INOCULATORS: Split: 7”

Noise Attack are dirty, trashy, noisy (apropos!) punk rock; nothing terribly flashy and solid all the way around. Nothing disappointing in their two songs, except maybe that I’d like a couple more tunes to strike an appropriate balance with the four songs by the Inoculators on the b-side. The Inoculators stuff was a bit of a disappointment for me, however. Based on the Dropped Their Brains LP, I expected something that had a greater variety of sounds than this does. Their tunes on this split were in the vein of the punk-driven tunes on the LP, rather than the ska-oriented stuff. It was more one-dimensional than what I expected, but do not take that wholly as a negative; what they’ve put on this record is certainly strong.
