STRUNG UP: Self-titled: 7”

Hardcore punk in the early ‘80s style: fast and mean. Musically, I kinda like it. It’s tight, well-played and interesting, even if it lacks the nail-biting intensity that one would expect from, say, Born Against (and yes, I know Born Against wasn’t an early ‘80s band, but they were pretty fucking intense). Lyrically, um, let’s just say that this band doesn’t play metal and we should be thankful for whatever lyrics we get. I bet they rip live and I’d like to hear more. –Not Josh
