WILD CHILD: Self-titled: 7” EP

Dirty and fast hardcore punk somewhere betwixt the School Jerks and Cülo. The drumming sounds like hell, the guitar lacks solid distortion, and the vocalist sounds like he’s slobbering all over himself. Fuggin’ spastic! “Stay Bent” is the best of the bunch, because it’s the final song on here and I know it’s over. Kidding. Relax… The real reason is it embodies all the best elements of the other four songs and pushes all those elements further into the red. It sounds like everything is on the verge of falling into chaos. The weird grunting in “Viral Load” has its charm, as well as the urgent delivery of “Brown Nose.”
