ZIPLOCK / DESTRUCTORS: Pax Romanus: Split: CD

This six-song split offers English streetpunk from real, legit English street punks. Ziplock are the most raw of the two bands here, with a vocalist who at times has a voice similar in gravely snarl to the singer of Fucked Up. Destructors, who are the stand out here, are much more traditional in their approach of classic U.K. punk—which sounds like it could have been recorded in 1982—including an obligatory cover of “Banned by the Pubs” thrown in for good measure.
