BOBBY PERU: 2 Live Peru: CS

Estrus/ Mummies/ Headcoats worship is alive and well in the garages of PDX. Scruffy and testy, fuzzed-out lo-fi of the highest caliber. A 25 oz. (one free bonus oz!) Bud in a single paper sack (and all the bravado that comes after one) translated to tape. Cassettes made a comeback just for bands like Bobby Peru, not the collectability of some well-known hardcore band’s latest release. Extra points for the 2 Live Crew/ Explicit Lyrics Warning Label packaging. –Matt Seward (Self-released, bobbyperupdx.bandcamp.com)
