SHORT CHANGED: Self-titled: CD

Dirty, crusty hardcore. The cover has a rad drawing of a zombie pirate with a skateboard and a piece of pizza. Was this somehow made with me in mind? I usually don’t delve into the crusty end of things, but I gotta say that Short Changed are kicking some ass here. Sure, the lyrics are a bit screamy, but it’s not over the top and you can actually hear what he’s saying. The music is solid with lots of good breakdowns and machine gun drums. I picture kids with bandannas going nuts when these guys play. I’d go see ‘em in a heartbeat.
