UNCOMMITTED, THE: Self-titled: LP

Largely short, straightforward, trashy hardcore with some interesting instrumentation (is that a steel guitar in there?) and great song titles like “If Czolgosz Was an Onanist.” Sound quality is a step above, say, a decent ’80s demo—kinda boxy but everything is clear and accentuates the songs’ drive. Singer was in “Hayseed Hardcore” legends Sons Of Ishmael and it sounds like he hasn’t settled down a whit. –Jimmy Alvarado (Never Met A Stranger, nevermetastranger.org)
