Novelties: Punk Rock Breeds Herpes 12"
Here's something a little different from Skrammel Records... though they're known primarily for releasing raging hardcore, the Novelties here are a pretty raging in their own right garage-punk band. They're definitely a garage band that would appeal to the hardcore set, though, as they're incredible fast and all intensity... I'm reminded of Henry Fiat's Open Sore, Dean Dirg, Japanese bands like Teengenerate, and the harder end of the Atlanta scene like Predator and Frantic. It's mega-catchy, fast, and punk as hell... they're Swedish, so there's a bit of the polished sound of the Hives, but if you can get down with that you'll flip for this.
