Institute: S/T 12"
Debut 12" from this new Texas band featuring members of a bunch of familiar bands like Wiccans, Glue, and Recide. I suppose that you could lump these guys in with the whole post-punk trend that's going on right now if you were being really lazy, but really what this is is straight up anarcho punk... lots of marching beat rhythms, spoke-sung vocals, and simple and catchy riffs. Deranged references Crisis in their description of the band and that definitely rings true, but this also has a bit of Crass vibe as well (mostly due to the drumming), which is something that virtually no band ever has been able to nail. Top-notch stuff... this one definitely gets my recommendation.
