VARIOUS ARTISTS: Killed by Modern Problems Vol. 1: Cassette

This twelve-song comp. has some really solid tracks throughout. My favorite songs are The Steaknives, “Stupid People,” Robocock, “Cookies,” and The Trites, “A Dirty Word.” All of those songs rip forth with the high-energy frenzy akin to old Black Flag. There’s good stuff here, with side B having the most gems.
