UGLY PARTS: Wet: Cassette

I had my suspicions within minutes of putting this one in the ol’ boombox, and was happy to confirm them by playing this one against some old favorites: Ugly Parts play the particular variety of hardcore that was specific to Boston in the early ‘80s. The tempos, tone, and, most importantly, urgency found in Wet easily rubs elbows with the F.U’s My America and Jerry’s Kids’ Is This My World: raw, ugly, and pissed. It’s a joy to have something this realized and vital land in my mailbox.
