FIT FOR ABUSE: Mindless Violence: LP

Boston has a hardcore pedigree second to none: Negative FX, Gang Green, Jerry’s Kids, Siege, SSD? Come on now. That was the ’80s; rough and tumble times. Remember when everyone went soft in the ’90s? Not Boston. Fit For Abuse carried the torch for the true Boston sound. Hard as fuck. Early SSD mixed with Slapshot. I love Boston. I have a lot of good friends there; good times had, brain cells lost. This record could be the soundtrack to those times where you wake up with a black eye, a half bag full of someone else’s coke, and your mouth tasting like your own blood. This record is the re-master of FFA’s first single from 1997 in all its hardcore glory. Blistering from start to finish. Shout to Briggs at Warthog Speak for the other FFA re-issues, which are worth a squint as well. Boston at its best. Mandatory. Hard as fuck. I can still taste the blood in my mouth. –Tim Brooks (Armageddon Shop)
