Nasa Space Universe: Across the Wounded Galaxies 12"

Shogun Records


Debut 12" from this Southern California band who are obviously heavily inspired by Die Kreuzen. They have a lot of aspects of DK's sound totally down... the awkward rhythms, the way the bass carries the riff while the guitarist just plays on the three thinnest strings, and of course the demented vocals, which remind me a lot of very early Die Kreuzen. However, despite all of this obvious influence, NSU actually sound really unique... maybe because they're Californians in 2011 and not midwesterners in the early 80s? A f***ing ripping LP... you can't get better than this if you're looking for spastic, confusing hardcore. Shogun Records
