INCITING RIOTS: Turn Off the News: 7”

May 15, 2023

I suppose the best way to describe the sound of Inciting Riots would be oi at hardcore speed. This is a long-running San Diego band and they really have their sound together. The title song is my favorite of the batch with that great, anthemic chorus. I’d love to hear an alternate version at half-speed, as it would be a perfect mid-tempo, beer-raising oi singalong. This band is very much the type of thing Bruce Roehrs would have raved about in MRR way back when. This stuff really rips. The tempo is full on-hardcore punk speed but those sing-song and anthemic vocals keep things from blurring together. –Mike Frame (New Sob)
