Foreign Lawns: Demo Cassette
Demo tape from this new band out of Wisconsin. Eric from Tenement turned me onto these guys, and I think that he's joined the band on drums even though he didn't actually play on this recording. I can see why he was interested, as this is totally killer... it's kind of beefy, catchy punk of the type you don't hear a lot any more. In some places it kind of reminds me of a more hardcore Naked Raygun, but there's also a Black Flag-ish dirge song and one song that is a dead ringer for the Monorchid / Skull Kontrol's warped garage-y punk. Basically, this is just some killer, catchy, old school US hardcore.
