Slow REACTshun


I have to be the last person to post these. I think my Mom already blogged about this shit before me. What can you do? React! Released these two records a while back, and I think I ordered them with that Mindset Collections pre order. First is Growing Stronger's "Toxic Fumes" on gold out of /200. This is a high quality release right here, real angry straight edge hardcore that is super similar to No Tolerance. If you like No Tolerance then check these guys out. The last track is easily my favorite, and the longest on the record coming in at a minute and a half. It's called "My Last Regret" and reminds me of Floorpunch with a fast first half and a nice sing along breakdown at the end, BRUTAL.


I picked up the Tranzmitors latest release on a whim, not really knowing shit about them. But damn I'm really glad I checked this out because now I love the Tranzmitors. That kind of poppy, catchy '77 garage punk and roll similar to the Real Kids. I guess they're from Vancouver, but they totally sing with  (fake?) British accents. Whatever, it adds to the flavor I say. They also remind me of one of my favorite all time bands, The Last Chordz (also with a "z"). This release is on clear blue out of /200, and worth checking out. If you plan on checking them out though, give them a listen first below because I think this is the kind of band you are either going to love or hate, and there is not much wiggle room in between. I love this shit, though.

  1. Surprisingly, I really liked the Tranzmitors record...one of the songs really reminded me of The Adicts, which was very cool. Oddly enough, I did't find myself too interested to check them out much beyond this two song 7 inch. I listened to the Live a Little More song that you posted, and now I'm wondering if I should check out more from this band.

  3. Hey Mike I downloaded their stuff for free a while back. If you can't find it let me know and I'll burn some cd's and send them to you! It is pretty good stuff. I don't know if I could listen to them on a regular basis, but it is a nice change of pace. And Jake, my mom tried blogging for Vinyl Noize, but apparently Kenny Loggins isn't that popular amongst the hardcore blogging community, oh well :(
