The ghost of Keith Morris lives in this Philadelphia four-piece, which is impressive considering he’s still alive. The lyrics reveal that these folks are very concerned with smashing the gender binary and with the legacies of HIV/AIDS for queer communities. Love seeing these kinds of unapologetic commitments in this sneering delight of a cassette, expressed with the sort of urgency you’d expect from a four-piece who self-recorded this tape in their practice space. It’s tighter and cleaner than the early punk heavyweights they’re incanting into the room, but these four should be on tour with OFF!, if you ask me. It’s got the kind of groove that’s so often missing from more straightforward punk outfits. I’d love to hear a full length from this band. –Theresa W. (Self-released)
