DESPERATE MEASURES: Rinsed: 10”/CD

Sep 16, 2021

Originally formed in New Zealand back in 1981, this current U.K.-based version of the band contains one original member, Eugene Butcher. Rinsed is the band’s return with a somewhat rockier sound. With the help of some punk veterans, Butcher adds another release to the band’s meager discography. The six tracks include two versions of a 1988 track “Lost Angels,” one live studio effort, and another being the original demo—the former being the better by some way, as it really kicks some ass in comparison. Not a bad record but I don’t really see the point of including the demo track. –Rich Cocksedge (Easy Action, [email protected], easyaction.co.uk)
