C.H.E.W. / PENETRODE: Split: 7”

C.H.E.W.: Completely feral hardcore punk with a woman singer who shrieks righteous bile like, “Taught to chase a future that isn’t mine/ the game’s been fucked since before our time.” From Chicago. Stands for Cop Hating Exploited Workers. Penetrode: Loose old school hardcore from Philly with big drum rolls, and one song in Spanish. Four wonderfully pissed-off and bleak songs from each band. –Chris Terry (Neck Chop, neck-chop-records.myshopify.com)
