FACTION, THE: Greatest Grinds: CD

Jan 05, 2022

Following in the footsteps of Fear and T.S.O.L., this is band re-recording earlier material. I’m not sure if there’s any additional back story with this one, but these “new versions” still seem to have a sharp edge. Of course diehards will say you must listen to the original versions only! I’ll leave that one alone and just say I like what I hear on this collection. “Dark Room” and “Let’s Go Get Cokes” are some of my favorites, but they all rip. It’s a good place to start and then you’ll probably want to dig deep into the back catalog. –Sean Koepenick (IM, imrecordsstore.com, thefaction.bandcamp.com)
