Spasma: Mediocrazia 7"

Bat Shit Records

$6.50

Yet another Fogna-related side project from Bat Shit Records, though this one is a little different. While most of this crew's stuff tends to be marked by a heavy Rudimentary Peni influence (or at least what sounds like it to me), Spasma are much more straightforward, with a recording that very strongly recalls Poison Idea's classic Darby Crash Rides Again, perhaps mixed with some nasty early European hardcore like Agent Orange or Wretched. Regardless, this has absolutely perfect early 80s-sounding analog production and the songwriting is flat-out ripping from top to bottom... can't recommend this one highly enough.
