SCHMUTZIGER MENSCH: Self-titled: CS

German for “Dirty Man” according to Google, Schmutziger Mensch play raw and fast hardcore punk with great riffs and solid songwriting. A lot of hardcore punk can get stale after repeated listens, but Schmutziger Mensch have so much going on that I found something new to appreciate with each play. The urge to want to scream along to the German lyrics will certainly grab you after repeated listens, even if you have no idea what they are singing about. With nine songs on this tape, and clocking in at about ten minutes, what Schmutziger Mensch lack in quantity, they more than make up for in quality many times over. –Paul J.
