Code: S/T 7"

self-released

$6.00

Sole release by this enigmatic Japanese band... apparently the members are only known by numbers rather than their actual names. The music is similarly cryptic, refusing to be pinned into any one subgenre. The vocals are rather clean, not barked like the typical Japanese hardcore band, but the rhythm section IS heavy like a hardcore band. And then there's the slashing, Gang of Four-influenced guitars... sometimes I think this kind of sounds like a Japanese Drive Like Jehu, but then I think that's totally wrong. I love records like this that you just can't pin down, and in addition to being slippery this one is also REALLY GOOD.
