VARIOUS ARTISTS: Punx to the Bone: #7: 7” EP

Ten bands on a 7”! This is like the old days. This is clearly international, but there is no insert with lyrics or info, which is crucial to such a varied compilation. For the most part, it’s super DIY hardcore that you would see in a basement in São Paulo or Minneapolis or back in the NYC Squat or Rot days. Lots of spiky letters and anarchy signs. I totally support DIY ethics and hands across the globe and all that punk stuff, but this was a tough listen as it was all over the place with very little context. Some bands I dug: Social Conflict, Anticitizen, and Oi! Koholix. –Tim Brooks (Dilapidated, [email protected])
