Fine Young Casuals: The Gates cassette

Night Shade Music


Ex- and current members of The Zodiacs, Side FX, Heart Attack Jizzers

Our take: Demo cassette from this Indianapolis band featuring former members of Side FX, among others. Indy isn't a place you hear a lot of good punk coming from, but this is solid... gritty, kind of mid-to-fast-paced punk with gnarly, throaty, but still catchy vocals. It's kind of in the same universe as something like Wiccans in the way that it combines hardcore with punkier elements, but there's no real apparent influence from garage-punk... just simple, catchy punk the way that the good lord intended it. Good stuff.
