TURKISH TECHNO / ANCHOR, THE: Split: 7”

Both bands here represent the same sound: big, fast, ballsy punk pop in the vein of Dillinger Four. Turkish Techno sums up the common man reality in the potent and poignant track “So Long and Thanks for the Nice Christmas” with bone true lyrics such as “I’ve found brand new ways to fuck it all up again.” On the other side, The Anchor rips it up with the stand out track “It’s Last Call,” where they crank out adrenaline-fueling palm mutes seeped in sugary sweet octave riffs.
