REVENGE OF THE PSYCHOTRONIC MAN: Colossal Velocity: LP/CD

Having listened to this numerous times, I can confirm that the title has been well chosen, as ROTPM cares not a jot for meandering, slow tunes; it just wants to blast the fuck out of everything around it. This is full-throttle punk rock being made by three guys armed with nothing more than a jackhammer and two pneumatic drills—or so it seems—given the commotion they make. To me, it’s frenetic hardcore with a bit of street punk, whilst a friend of mine reckons it’s a cross between Zeke and Lawnmower Deth. To be fair, his comparison is equally valid. –Rich Cocksedge (TNS, [email protected], tnsrecords.co.uk)
