SMART COPS: Self-titled: EP

The latest bands from ex-members of La Piovra and Ohuzaru. Snotty punk that recalls early Italian punk. The playing is loose yet solid. Hyper paced and all that. Sticks like glue to the formula. The b-side is the strongest, with the songs given more space. The a-side is okay, but the first two songs sound too much alike. This isn’t bad, but it’s one of those records that you won’t remember listening to a couple minutes later.
