Some killer mid-80s UK punk from HATE THAT SMILE. The vocalist sounds like a Join The Army era Mike Muir on the first track, and after that he just kinda sounds weird, but by the end of this tape I find myself drawn to his voice. Ultra clean and jangling lead guitar that suits the mid tempo songs brilliantly. There are hints of several different bands, but it's really just passing glimpses, which keep you one your listening toes. I hear AHEADS, UPRIGHT CITIZENS, Flip Your Wig-era HUSKER DU, SUBHUMANS, PSYCHEDELIC FURS (yeah I know, FURS? weird, but it's in the songwriting and I can't escape the reference) and others that you will probably find as well. I am pretty sure that these dudes were involved in the early thrash/crossover scene, though their music really doesn't reflect that at all, just sounds like melodic UK punk to this guy...fortunately this guy likes melodic UK punk. 11 songs, "Out Of Nowhere" is the ripper: get into it.
