RAD: This Is Rad: 7”

Dunno if it’s a compliment or insult—depends on what you think of the label’s output, I reckon—but this brings back memories of Mystic Records’ ‘80s thrash-o-rama glory days. Seven zippy, simple thrash tunes crammed onto one side of a seven-inch record, lyrics covering asshole geeks, asshole moshers, asshole ‘90s punks, protection of delicate body regions whilst in a pit, and Battlestar Galactica. They may not be breaking any new ground, but they definitely sound like they’re having fun not doing so.
