Nice to see Hostage Records still at it. The label has always clearly been a labor of love from a true fan of punk rock. The amount of Orange County documentation this label has provided the last couple of decades cannot be overstated. The Berzerkers surprised me a bit with the A-side song “For Love,” as it sounds like a Pat Todd/Lazy Cowgirls-style tune, especially melodically. The song on the flip, “Rest Yer Bones” reminds me a little of that fantastic first album by The Grabbers from the mid-’90s. Really great single here that is just a little different from what many may think of as the “Hostage Sound.” Could not recommend this more. –Mike Frame (Hostage)
