HOOD RATS: Trash Party: CS

Apr 08, 2019

Nasty, energetic ’80s-styled streetpunk with guttural vocals and shreddy solos to give it a Motörhead twist. Lyrics range from the comically grotesque (“Sell Your Body to Science”) to anti-capitalist rage (“Hostile Takeover,” “Sleeping in the Street”) and nihilistic self-loathing (“Off Drugs and Miserable”). Definitely something I could have heard blasting from my little brother’s room around eighth grade, probably in between Varukers and Broken Bones. In a good way! –Indiana Laub (Girlsville, [email protected], girlsville.bandcamp.com)
