RADICAL FUN TIME: There Is Only One Race the Human Race: 7”

Sep 17, 2018

This is a true punk record in the sense that Radical Fun Time seem to defy you to understand them. For instance, I still can’t figure out how there are three songs on the A side; I swear it’s only one. Musically, R.F.T. seem to have a tent pegged in the crust punk camp, but based on the moments of chaos and cacophony I would bet that they would rage against being thus pigeon-holed. So as a brief, redundant summary, I would suggest that R.F.T. are more or less crust punk, (including overtly political lyrical content) that at times devolves into swirls of noise and, how should I say it, un-beat. And it works—I love the crusty stuff, but the noise took a bit of warming to, and now I like it a bit more with every listen. –The Lord Kveldulfr (Radical Fun)
