BRAIN VACATION: Nuclear Retort: LP

Brain Vacation plays hardcore punk in the vein of… well, every other hardcore band you can think of. Let’s face it: if you are looking for a hardcore record, you aren’t waiting to see who can really expand the genre. On Nuclear Retort, the fat is trimmed, the songs are fast, and the band is fucking pissed. I like this record a lot. We live in desperate times when bands like this are more than welcome. No time to bullshit. Gimme the truth fast and loud. –Jon Mule (Wall Of Youth, wallofyouth.com)
