THIS MOMENT IN BLACK HISTORY: It Takes a Nation of Assholes to Hold Us Back: LP

TMIBH has the versatility and intensity of Rites Of Spring, the political/social conscience of Dillinger Four, and have the ability to just bring it harder than 99.9 percent of the entire world’s population (Sweden included). If Trial By Fire’s Ringing in the Dawn had been recorded by Steve Albini and they really wanted to stir things up it—might have been this album. It Takes A Nation… is an adventure of an LP traveling through the American Midwest with heavy, yet fluid, guitars as your guides and the occasional sound effect just making the trip even more interesting. If there ever was the perfect combination of passionate DC hardcore with Midwest garage-punk, this could probably be it. This record came out last year and is now available on vinyl through X-Mist Records.
