DEBT NEGLECTOR: The Kids Are Pissed: 12”EP

Listening to Debt Neglector’s debut album, Atomicland, resulted in me becoming a firm fan of the Floridian band. This EP is the follow up, and enhances my belief that this quartet is one of the finest exponents of melodic punk rock around today. The title of the record says it all, as the six tracks decry the situation the U.S.A. finds itself with Trump at the helm. Opening track “Scared of U.S.” kicks off briefly reminding me of Descendents/ALL before just ploughing on with the more discernible Debt Neglector sound I love. The two guitars work in tandem creating a wall of fuzz, whilst the rhythm section punches the songs along with precision. –Rich Cocksedge (Smartpunk, [email protected], smartpunk.com)
