Wow I was not expecting this to be a good as it is! Bruce and Carl are from the UK and play garagey pop punk. The tape is lo-fi as it comes but this works incredibly well. The drumming is simple but effective, the riffs are perhaps what makes it work the best and put most punk bands to shame with their originality and effectiveness. And the vocals seem care-free and semi-catchy, whilst at the same time being virtually indecipherable. They remind me a bit of the vocals on the Late Bloomer demo. The first side of the tape has me hooked; the second loses me a little bit. Overall, a great first effort and worth keeping an eye on.
