FOSTER CARE: El Abuso: LP

Killer hardcore punk from these New York cretins. It very much reminds me of the early ’80s style: raw, fast, vicious, and unpredictable. Chris Teenager’s vocals remind me a bit of Roger Miret (Agnostic Front) in how they are spit out with an urgency that almost clips the words, but I don’t hear any calls for unity in these songs. The music sounds nasty, violent, and out for a fight with anyone who looks at them sideways. If this record had come out in 1981 it would be Discogs gold. Get it now before you have to sell an organ or two just to get a VG+ copy in years to come. –Matt Average (Total Punk, floridasdying.com)
