SCUM OF THE EARTH: Better Late Than Never: CD

Mid-tempo hardcore from a long in the tooth, and allegedly very lazy, Australian band. Most of the songs are good, if uneventful, but the song “Search & Destroy,” which is not a Stooges cover, caught my attention and will definitely make the rounds on future tapes made for the long drives in the Orange Death Machine.
