TO BE HATED: Banned in Dade County: 7"

Jul 21, 2011

I don’t really understand live albums, and certainly don’t understand why a relatively unknown band (well, to be fair, unknown by me, which means next to nothing) would choose release a seven inch record of a live material. To Be Hated play competent spirit-of-’77 street punk with duel male/female vocals that kinda reminds me of Blanks 77. I would have enjoyed it more if it was recorded on a four track in their practice space rather than what I suspect is the board at a club show, but I bet the show was pretty fun.
