Picked this up today... the "Patriot" ep by Cold Shoulder. Due to my laziness I don't know a huge amount about this band at this stage, I stumbled onto them about 6 months ago by means of Cowabunga Records. I got my hands on stuff from the demo they did and I was mighty impressed. Then I just plain forgot about them, till I saw this 7" on the RevHQ site, so I grabed it. I suppose you could describe these guys as a sort of Boston styled hardcore band with some more moshier stuff going on, and quite a modern edge. To be honest I don't think they quite suit Cowabunga Records, though I doubt that matters. Still a great band, with some fiery lyrics, and a great delivery, and they're from Chicago.
