Four tracks of fast n' feral punk from a band that manages to sound wildly unhinged yet completely and utterly together. There's a gobby lads-on-the-town approach to the vocals that give things a slight UK82 vibe, but the manic delivery and bright, thrashy sound seems more in keeping with a band like Career Suicide. The icing on the cake for me are the madcap guitar leads, which burst in and out with a raw, unbridled energy and tip things so far into the red that there's absolutely no going back. It's a note-perfect single, burning with such wholesome punk rock goodness that you can see exactly why labels from the globe's four corners wanted a part in putting it out - do yourself a favour and get involved.
