Killer, catchy punk from upstate NY featuring Brandon from Direct Control / Government Warning.

Our take: Demo cassette from this new band out of Buffalo featuring Brandon from Direct Control / Government Warning. I'm not sure what he's playing, but the drum parts sound very Brandon-esque and I'd be surprised if he wasn't writing the songs as well, because they're right up his alley. Even more melodic than pretty much any given Government Warning song, these all-too-brief three tracks seriously sound like lost Adolescents outtakes (and, by extension, might also be outtakes from Rikk Agnew's All By Myself or D.I.'s Horse Bites Dog Cries). I mean, the song-writing is absolutely spot-on early California-style punk, but the vocals are even more melodic, moving in the direction of bands like Squirrel bait who really pushed the whole "melodic hardcore" thing just about as far as it could go before it would morph into pop-punk. This is a very raw recording but damn... this is straight fire. Highly recommended.
