CONDOMINIUM


CONDOMINIUM made a bit of a buzz around these parts earlier this year.  By "quite a buzz," I mean three or four people talked about them, and by "around these parts," I mean my house.  They released two killer singles, but this live in the studio tape really fucking nails it.  Dirty ugly hardcore punk that kicks you in the teeth over and over (metaphorically speaking of course) and somehow never falls into any of the traps or cliches that make some people (and by "some people," I mean people who are wrong) claim that hardcore died in 198whatever - probably the same year that those same people stopped going to see jaw dropping hardcore bands.  Like CONDOMINIUM.  Sometimes fast and down your throat, sometimes slow and frustrating like it's stuck in concrete...or perhaps "Glue," an excellent cover of which closes out the tape.  Nice, eh?


Blinded released this bad boy, and they still have copies, so I highly suggest you contact them and get one.  And then get their other shit, because if there is any filler on this label, I can't find it.
