The Insults: Population Zero 7"

Last Laugh Records


You may know "Population Zero" from its inclusion on Killed by Death #8 1/2, and it's a great slice of minimal, UK-influenced KBD punk... it's got the loose, rawness of the best KBD stuff, but something about the driving, almost rockabilly-ish bass line reminds me of UK stuff, maybe even the early Fall? As for the flip, it's very much in the same vein with a fast tempo, high guitars and rumbling bass... in a way it reminds me of the Warsaw stuff, but not quite as dark. This is definitely all you want from a KBD reissue, so don't sleep!
