INCISIONS: Self-titled: LP/CD

TNS really does has its finger on the pulse of the U.K. punk scene and the debut album from Incisions is proof positive of its continuing good taste. This Manchester quartet displays its influences of ’80s USHC and punchy U.K. punk across a dozen tracks lasting less than a total of twenty minutes. The result is a highly efficient, angry album, built upon a blend of those influences, neither one being overpowering. I like the vocals, the brevity of the songs, and also the anger that is evident. Good stuff and I love how the vocalist pronounces “fucking” as “fooking” with his Mancunian accent. –Rich Cocksedge (TNS, [email protected], tnsrecords.co.uk)
