NIGHTFREAK: Speed Trials: CS

May 24, 2022

Chicago’s NightFreak are self-described “feral punk,” and that works well enough for me. I listen to these dudes and recall nights of savagery back home in Wisconsin, gleefully hurling beer and chairs around the bar. NightFreak have a distinct rawk edge to them, but they go across subgenres despite that; I could imagine them filling the bill wonderfully with the Supersuckers one day and then doing a basement hardcore show the next. Good stuff. –The Lord Kveldulfr (Painters Tapes)
