ONE-EYED MUSKRATS / NUMBER 9 HARD: Passport to Party: 7”

Thanks to the mislabelled vinyl, I ended up listening to Number 9 Hard’s side first. Ska-punk that sounds like it would have fared well circa 1996. It isn’t terrible by any means, just didn’t hold my attention. One-Eyed Muskrats are the clear winners on this split with a mid-tempo hardcore assault that kind of reminded me of the early output of the Dayglo Abortions. I approve.
