STAKEOUT, THE: On the Run: CD EP

From Finland, featuring a couple of members from Selfish. This reminds me of BGK, the first Suicidal Tendencies record, DS-13, and Amdi Petersen’s Arme. Mid-’80s punk rock that is straightforward, no bullshit, and a kick in the ass. With all the bands trying to capture the American sound of that period, the international community has it nailed down pat.
