ZŁODZIEJE ROWERÓW: Demo 1995: LP

As a fan of both Fuel and old videos of people in loose-fitting shirts doing the “Fugazi dance” (ask Rene), I thoroughly enjoyed this record. It’s melodic Ebullition-style hardcore from ’90s Zambrów, Poland. Złodzieje Rowerów were one of the leading ’90s Polish hardcore acts before disbanding in 2010. This record is lovingly packaged with a zine-style insert to effectively transport you to another time and place. Plus you can’t go wrong with a song openly mocking Pope John Paul II. –Daryl (Refuse)
