After infinite custom problems (FUCK BREXIT) finally is here and complete the debut album from X-INTRUDER entitled 'Punished For The Crime Of Lacking In Judgement'... 14 cuts of chaotic hardcore punk with LOST SOUNDS (rat brains and microchips era) feeling if it was a Hardcore record... like Jay Reatard playing UK82 with a NO TREND feeling. All by the mind and hand of my friend Marco Palumbo from UK and involved in infinite bands as THE GAGGERS and LA RABBIA. This is a colaboration between his great label No Front Teeth andĀ DiscosĀ EnfermosĀ limited to 329 copy with 109 of them on yellow mustard with alternative cover.

Our take: Debut release from this UK solo project. If Iā€™m reading the description correctly, the person who is X-Intruder is also the owner of the long-running UK punk label No Front Teeth. While No Front Teeth has released a few bands I know and like (like Sick Bags), I donā€™t know much about the label, so Iā€™m coming in without too many preconceptions. The description mentions Lost Sounds and I can hear that in the snotty, heavily accented vocals and the catchiness of the songs, but X-Intruder is much more hardcore. It sounds like thereā€™s a lot of Plastic Surgery Disasters-era Dead Kennedys in X-Intruderā€™s DNA, particularly the overall dramatic flair and the East Bay Ray-like ability to craft memorable guitar hooks. My only complaintā€”though many people would see this as a plusā€”is that Punished For The Crime Of Lacking In Judgement is a bit long. While 26 minutes is a short full-length by any normal personā€™s standards, my frame of reference has been ruined by far too many 7ā€s and short-ass 12ā€ 45s. If youā€™re a glutton for fast and catchy hardcore punk, though, this is what you want.
