DOMESTICS, THE / PIZZA TRAMP: Split: 12”

These two bands are renowned for a no nonsense delivery of short, thrashy hardcore tunes but this split sees a total change in approach with each providing a single track in excess of eleven minutes. This results in a more varied piece of work from each band, both shifting pace and mood across their respective sides of the vinyl. It’s good to hear something a bit different from this pair, as the songs allow for them to do much more than just thrash it out. The songs allow them to flex their creative muscles. A bold and successful move. –Rich Cocksedge (TNS, [email protected], tnsrecords.co.uk)
