REDEMPTION 87: All Guns Poolside: CD

Man, I built up so much hate for everything that developed from the original New England youth crew scene I forgot how fucking good Youth of Today and some of the others were. Taking YOT and the Cro Mags as starting points and then not going anywhere else (except to the Bad Brains and Negative Approach for covers), R87 tears down the walls with the best NYHC I’ve heard in many years and so what if it’s retro? I’m already tired of the bandana refestival, so I’ll chew on this until someone starts a revival of the classic work of Kilslug.
