RANCID HELL SPAWN: Abolition of the Organism: 7”

Rancid Hell Spawn is back! This is the first single from the newly reformed U.K. band. The older punk crowd who were around in the early ‘90s will certainly be familiar with their noisy and distorted blasts of weirdo punk noise, and this new four-song EP pretty much picks up right where they left off. Back in the ‘90s, they were a really prolific band that didn’t really fit in with any specific scene, in my opinion. In 2012, I could see them fitting in perfectly alongside some of the oddball noise rockers on the Load Records label, or maybe even wouldn’t find them so removed from the A Frames or the other bands with ties to SS Records. Recommended.
