6-song 7" from this Cleveland punk band featuring members of Bulsch... kind of reminds me of early Necros or Iron Cross.

Our take: Debut single from this new Cleveland band that features members of Bulsch and, I believe, by extension also come from the same scene as Perverts Again and Cruelster. Roobydocks are a little different than any of those bands, though, playing a style of music that sits right on the line between early UK82 punk and early 80s USHC. In particular, they sound like the early American hardcore bands who were clearly listening to all of the No Future records singles as they came out… bands like Negative Approach, SOA, and the Necros. In particular, the Roobydocks sound to me like a perfect mix of early Red Alert and Sex Drive-era Necros. It’s pure midwestern punk/hardcore, done without an ounce of fat or bullshit. Highly recommended for the purists out there.
