SMUT: First Kiss: 12” EP

Raw, feral hardcore. They don’t really go full-on thrash, but rather ride along at a nice clip with an obnoxious-sounding singer and simple-yet-potent tunes that would’ve made them rulers of the roost back in, say, 1982. Fuck Ups meet The Fix, maybe? This is gonna get worn down to the nub in short order. –Jimmy Alvarado (Iron Lung, ironlungrecords.bigcartel.com)
