Maybe you had to be at VLHS for the Halloween show, maybe I’m nuts, or maybe it’s obvious, but I think the song “Plasma” on the B side sounds like Nirvana. Like everything that kicked ass about that band squeezed into a song. As a Nirvana fan, I know it’s not possible, but I was fortunate enough to see them do that cover set on Halloween and I’m telling you, this is just as dead on. The rest of this 7” is Pangea belting out three more slices of punk rock and roll perfection. Referring to this as catchy doesn’t do it justice. It doesn’t just catch you, it makes you want to be caught. The song “Love & Alcohol” has gone into my top five love songs of all time list. It’s up there with Ray Price performing “For the Good Times.” To be honest, I didn’t think this band could—or needed to—get better, but this recording proves they did.
