VIVID SEKT: Who Protects Us from Ourselves?: 7” EP

Three tracks from a Portland group comprised of members of Arctic Flowers and Moral Hex. This sounds like it was very much influenced by early ‘80s U.K. anarcho punk, with things leaning more towards the sensibilities of quasi-goth punkers like The Mob than the more martial skronk of Crass or Dirt. Lyrics are intelligent and poetic while keeping their point in focus; the songs are memorable and well executed. Thumbs up. –Jimmy Alvarado (Black Water)
