Straight from Kansas City, Loss Prevention returns with their follow up seven inch, "SHOOT TO KILL", after a great surprise demo was released last year. Inspired by recent KC bands like BETA BOYS and NO CLASS as well as classic Hardcore Punk like AMDI PETERSON ARME and JESUS AND THE GOSPEL FUCKERS, Loss Prevention takes a breakneck approach to Hardcore Punk with three words: "SPEED, SPEED, SPEED" These four tracks are relentless, careening and moving like a runway train. 300 first press records with 100 on yeller with printed inner sleeves.
Our take: The whole recent drop from 11pm Records has been great, and while I love the Cadenaxo LP and Freon tape, this four song rager from Loss Prevention takes the title for me. Loss Prevention plays the kind of fast and grimy US hardcore that I love, taking cues from the early Dischord and Touch and Go catalog, but augmented with a big dollop of Black Flag’s hopelessness. While they’re not as fast as Suck Lords or Electric Chair, this appeals to the same nihilistic sensibility, and if you’re a fan of what those bands are doing, I recommend checking this out. All four tracks are ace, but the fast hammer-ons in “Devil’s Fools” brings a little early C.O.C. into the mix, making it this southern boy’s clear favorite. Lovers of pure USHC, don’t miss this!
