BAD BREEDING: Divide: LP

Bad Breeding hail from the U.K. and I suppose that’s a good a place as any to trace their influences. Anarcho punk is the template but this record is far from being straight forward. The bright spots quickly lose their shine in a wall of discordant guitar noise, lurching drum beats, and cathartic vocals. If Nick Blinko started a band with folks from Icons Of Filth, Whitehouse, and Conflict but none of the members knew each other, then this might have been the result. There’s a well-written manifesto included if you’re just as sick and tired of the lies and bullshit we’re being fed both here in the States and across the pond and need some fodder. –Juan Espinosa (Iron Lung)
