RED DONS: Genocide: 7”

These cats have long carved their own niche within the non-Ramones influenced poppier wing of punk. These latest two additions to their oeuvre continue along the same path previously trod—slashing downstroked minor chords over mid-tempo beats and vocals that know their way around a good melody. Both get the head bobbing easily while the mind marvels at the swell sounds the ears are picking up. Another couple of rockers here and no filler to diminish the effort. –Jimmy Alvarado (Man In Decline, manindecline.limitedrun.com)
