GOOSEBUMPS “Scared to See a Doctor” 7” (Katorga Works Records)
NYC’s hardcore scumlords return with their crowning achievement as a band, the Scared To See A Doctor EP. Equipped with a far superior recording and eschewing the traditional hardcore mold of their first 7”, the band has begun incorporating elements of drugged-out punk classics such as Fang, Flipper, and even Butthole Surfers to create a wholly unique hardcore punk experience that could only come from Ground Zero.
MISLED YOUTH “S/T” 7” (Society Bleeds Records)
Hailing from Washington, DC, Misled Youth holds nothing back as they rip through 5 songs in under 6 minutes with nothing but pure, fast Hardcore. Featuring members of other powerhouse bands such as Coke Bust and Meth Lab, the intensity and urgency displayed on the band’s debut 7” is not unlike the member’s other projects, but with it’s own unique identity. Strong influences from Youth Of Today, Poison Idea, and early 2000’s DC Hardcore such as Striking Distance are all apparent in Misled Youth’s sound, blending together nicely for a new take on a classic style of Hardcore. Split release with Refuse Records.
GAS RAG “6 Song EP” 7” (Not Normal Tapes)
American vinyl pressing of Gas Rag’s flawless demo, for those of you that missed out on da tape version. Six tracks of pure, unadulterated Midwestern idiocy that combine equal parts Fix, Anti-Cimex, and leather, melts ‘em in a pot and huffs the resulting concoction.
