Piss On Authority: Crusty thrash taking on the cult of Obama, society, scene police, and so on. Not particularly groundbreaking work, but they’re effective nonetheless. Slug: Was half hoping the old L.A. noise band that previously used the Slug moniker had moved en masse to Tottenham. Alas, no. Ye get U.K. ‘82-influenced (or templated) punk/hardcore, also not exactly breaking new ground, but in possession with just the right amount of vitriol to sell it.
