Preskool Dropouts: demo cassette

Twerp Records

$4.00

Demo cassette from this new Massachusetts band. Being named after a Gang Green song I think you can pretty much imagine what you're in for, and that's exactly what you get. The fast parts on this demo remind me so much of the This Is Boston Not LA comp that you could probably slip these tracks into a reissue of that classic LP and no one would notice. It has a perfectly raw, 80s-sounding recording (I'm guessing it's an analog 4-track or at least a very, very close approximation of it), and the music has that punk-inflected, endearingly sloppy vibe that so few modern bands are able to capture. A total ripper and definitely one of the standout 80s USHC-inspired releases I've heard in some time.
