Our take: Another Confuse bootleg rolls off the pipeline, this time compiling the band’s later material: the Spending Loud Night 7", Contempt For The Authority and Take Off The Lie 7", Stupid Life 7", and tracks from the Violent Party Omnibus and Neo compilations. The last Confuse bootleg we carried had truly atrocious cover artwork, but thankfully this one is better. As I've said, there are no bad Confuse releases, and if you love Japanese hardcore and/or noise-punk you should be familiar with all of their material. One thing I love about Confuse is how much they changed from release to release, and that’s on full display here. Spending Loud Night is one of the band’s nastiest recordings, a wash of hiss and treble that barely even qualifies as music. That stuff is great and very important for pushing the boundaries of noise not music, but I love Confuse’s releases with cleaner recordings even more. Case in point, the Contempt for the Authority 7”, which has a crystal clear recording that highlights how raw and crazy Confuse were even better than the noisier and more primitive recordings. The three tracks from compilations here are also essential (particularly the track from the Neo comp, which is the cleanest recording Confuse ever got), and the LP ends with the Stupid Life EP. While “General Speech” is a classic Confuse hardcore ripper, Stupid Life finds the band drifting away from traditional hardcore punk, delving even further into the noisy chaos. The title track even reminds me of 90s noise rock. This reissue includes an insert with lineup and recording info, reproductions of the original sleve artwork, and top-notch sound quality.
