NORTON: Long Walks on Short Piers: LP

May 20, 2010

Apparently named after the Hüsker’s bass player (Greg Norton), this record reminds me less of the Dü and more of some of their contemporary anthemic, hardcore-rooted punk bands like Scream or 7 Seconds, only with more gravel voiced vocals reminiscent of Razorcake favorites Davey Quinn or Frankie Stubbs. In any case, this shit grooves and you should check it out. Tremendously eye-catching collage work on the album cover, too. All in all, very well done and very well put together.
