HI-STANDARD: Another Starting Line: 7”

Sep 20, 2017

It has been at least two decades since I last listened to this band from Japan. Back on Fat Wreck Chords and sounding very much the same, Hi-Standard are still laying down that mid-’90s Epifat slick punk sound. These appear to be the first new recordings in a decade and a half and they have picked up right where they left off. If you were a fan before, you will wanna be all over this. If you always wondered about this band, this is as good a place as any to start. –Mike Frame (Fat Wreck Chords)
