SHANGHAI WIRES: Black Waves: LP

Snotty ‘77-style street punk. The opening track sounds unmistakably like Defiance’s “No Future, No Hope.” Song topics range from sinking Kamikaze ships, spitting razor blades, and several references to radio masts. Rock’n’roll guitar bends and single syllable vocal snivels. Surprisingly, I really like the drum sound on this record. If you’re looking for something fun to skate to: this is your album.
