SPEARS, THE: Shove: CD

What do you get when you hand Gary Strickland, vocalist for legendary Florida hardcore band Hated Youth, a bass and stick him in a band with Pink Lincolns vocalist Chris Barrows, Down By Law guitarist Sam Williams and current DRI drummer Rob Rampy? A hardcore album that may not burn with the same intensity as early DRI or Hated Youth, but is still rife with rock solid tunes that occasionally come within sight of Zero Boys-level greatness.
