I’m always really stoked when heads from back in the day are still as involved and excited by the current DIY punk scene rather than trying to relive on some perceived “fame” from back in the day. These guys used to be in the Swedish powerhouse Raped Teenagers back in the early to mid-’80s, playing rippin’ hardcore nearly thirty years ago. Pusrad keep the uncompromising dream alive—crazy, eclectic songs, few reaching much past ninety seconds. The sound is pretty out there, like a hardcore Wire. Stops and starts, twists and turns. Too much for me, but I can see the appeal and am stoked for the dudes my age still ripping!
