RAWHIDE: Branded for Life: 7”

It’s a bit of a copout to immediately compare this garage-y four-song Swedish record to The Hellacopters or Turbonegro, but those really do seem to be the main influences here. Tending towards the rougher, cock rockier sides of both of the aforementioned bands, these tracks are solid blasts of grimy, seedy Scandinavian punk. I’d say it’s nothing special, but these nuts might hop a plane and kill me for saying so.
