VARIOUS ARTISTS: Haiku Fucks Volume One: 7” EP

Fourteen U.K. bands crank out fourteen tracks of short (longest length here is an epic minute and four seconds) blasts of hardcore and grindy thrash. There’s enough diversity in delivery to keep things from turning into a blur, but kudos are specifically due to 51stState for managing to really stand out with a tune that would’ve fit in well on one of Crass’ Bullshit Detectorcomps.
