DESEOS PRIMITIVOS: Self-titled: LP/CD

This has been hanging around on the internet for a few months now with just a CD version available initially. However, it’s now released on both sides of the Atlantic and I’m sure there will be many picking this up. It’s mid-tempo, tuneful hardcore—although with a guitar that doesn’t grate, more a case of it using pace over any effects to create the drive. There are also a few nods to a UK82 sound as well, but the good stuff, not the plodding kind which doesn’t stand up well decades on. An exhilarating listen. –Rich Cocksedge (Going Underground, goingundergroundrecords.com / No Front Teeth, [email protected], nofrontteeth.co.uk)
