Stepdad SS: Mad About It 12"
Debut vinyl from this Charlotte, North Carolina band who are sort of the alter ego to Sorry State faves No Power. Stepdad SS share the same guitarist and bassist, and while the no-bs hardcore approach carries over from No Power, I feel like Stepdad is a little more straight up, reminding less of the crust influences that No Power explores and more of a classic fast hardcore in the early 80s European tradition. The vocals are also a lot crazier than No Power, a rabid mess that kind of flies all over the beat but only sounds angrier as a consequence. Limited to 300 copies with a screen-printed cover and poster insert, so not likely to stick around all that long.
