BRUTAL BIRTHDAY: Commotion: 7”

These Italians know how to thrash with the best of them. Listening to Commotion conjured up a weird mental image for me: a saliva-drenched lollipop laying in a gigantic, active ant pile. Don’t know why, exactly. Maybe it’s the filthy production mixed with the punchy two-minute-and-under hate songs. This trash punk may be devoid of nutrients, but it’s sure to satisfy your junk craving. I highly suggest you throw down some coin for this sweet 7”. -Simone Carter (Total Punk, [email protected], floridasdying.com)
