Originally I ordered this through the RevHQ store when it first came out, but I never actually received it. When my order arrived this had been stricken off the invoice and I hadn't been charged for it. Their portion of the records sold out quickly. That doesn't normally happen with Rev. I was a little pissed but I didn't really bother chasing it up. That was until about a month ago when I stumbled across is on eBay. Something like $20 secured this.
I doubt that I really need to go into massive depth about this band and this recording in particular. A+ New York inspired hardcore from Europe. The best thing that continent has ever produced by a LONG SHOT. This demo and the bands following debut 7" "Look Alive" would have to be two of my favourite releases ever. Bouncy, tough, bulky sounding recordings with a great old feeling. No band has done this style better since.
The band did go on the manipulate their sound in a more Supertouch direction as most would know, and the impression I get is that more people like that later stuff, but to me these early recordings were definitely the band in their prime. You can't fuck with this demo.
