Here is a band that has been getting a ton of attention lately. This Boston band sounds like much of the late great knuckle dragger hardcore and you know I got no complaints about that. Their members play/have played in bands like Boston Stranger, Waste Management, Social Circkle, Blank Stare, Scapegoat and more. This is a fantastic 7" and was really difficult for me to track down. I believe it was pressed out of /500 on black.

Part of the controversy surrounding this band revolves around a song called "Foreign Exchange" which does sound like an anti-immigration song. However, I would be really surprised if that is what they meant by it. When I hear it, I hear it more so about pieces of shit trying to get in their scene, and they're telling them to get the fuck out. I don't know if there have been any "official" statements made yet but it's amazing how quick people can jump to conclusions. Maybe this controversy helped this become one of the most sought after pieces of vinyl this year? Either way, this release rules and I actually prefer this band to Boston Strangler and the rest of the bands mentioned above.
