HEARTTHROB: Demo 1 and 2: CS

Mar 15, 2022

Heartthrob from Victorville combined their two demos onto one cool-looking cassette. Warp speed hardcore, pop punk, and thrash with lovelorn lyrics that could only be played by youths who probably spend as much time crying into their beers as they do boofing Mountain Dew and having fart contests. The Ergs! and Descendents covers aren’t listed but are played nearly identically to the originals so while they’re fun, they aren’t as crucial as the originals. Get yourself a hot-n-ready and jam this tape in your mom’s old boombox, you dateless wonder! –Juan Espinosa (Extinction Burst, extinction-burst.com, heartthrobpunx.bandcamp.com)
