DEPROGRAM: Demonstration Tape: CS

This brutal, instantly engaging demo is on the interesting cassette label Einsamkeit Tapes, a small label based in Olympia, Wash. putting out neat-looking tapes left and right. Deprogram is from Olympia and they play d-beat-inspired hardcore in the hardest sense of the term. For anyone into Anti Cimex or other d-beat progenitors, Deprogram has that now-classic sound, but with contemporary political lyrics. I like the tape’s title, too. When was the last time you thought of the fact that the word demo is short for demonstration? –Art Ettinger (Einsamkeit, einsamkeittapes.blogspot.com)
