This is a split record between bands doing Cure covers. As if I know anything about the Cure. Some person e-mailed me the other day to tell me I was shit at doing reviews and that I should stop. Also that I was a faggot and that I should die. Their main gripe was that I didn't know any bands from outside of hardcore and that I wrote every band sounded like other hardcore bands. Which was pretty much true, and I told them that I agreed with quite a lot of what they just wrote me, apart from the faggot and dying part. And anyway, after a couple of e-mails they affectionately called me a limey bastard and agreed to do me a mixtape of all the stuff they think is good. I look forward to hearing it. Though I still probably won't have a clue about the Cure or whatever afterwards, but I hope they tape me something good.

tADGoS are ex-members of Index for Potential Suicide, and this sounds as much like IFPS as Kylie Minogue. It has keyboards (LOTS OF KEYBOARDS) and kind of snotty vocals. It's tuneful and I enjoyed it. I don't know who to compare it to as: "musicians are inspired by more than just the miniscule amount of music that your pathetic ass listens to", as my critic put it. Oh well. I really like this. It sounds like Minor Threat and Indian Summer.

I know the Jam Session because they normally play crazy emo violence that's like a more focused Locust. Do you like my rhyme? Anyway, this sounds nothing like emo violence. It has more snotty vocals (sort of Born Against-y; see there I go again comparing bands to other hardcore bands). "Killing an Arab" is punk rocky / new-wave type stuff with a cool bass sound and some keyboard thrown in, but I don't know what else to say because I am "musically uneducated as fuck". Rock. "Siamese Twins" is slower, and bizarrely has some cookie monster vocals.

Get this. Mine came in a velvet cover which is really nice, but a fucker to put the record back into because it slides all over the place.
