DEFAULT



I swear I used to have a 7 incher from DEFAULT, but apparently it wasn't very good and didn't make the cut during the last purge, and now I'm kicking myself in the ass, cos this demo is rippin'. I seem to remember they were from Germany, but now I fukkn forget, so I'm left to present you with these 5 songs of mid 80s hardcore punk with no background (let the flogging commence).  Equal parts early HC and scorching UK punk, DEFAULT have a gloriously gritty guitar sound , and songs like "More Than Fun"  are total classic material. What would happen if you combined COURT MARTIAL and 7 SECONDS? I'm not sure either, but it seems like DEFAULT might have tried to pull that experiment off back in 1987, and I thank them for it.

Yeah I think the 7" was on First Strike? I remember the pink cover and the logo, but I didn't keep my copy either.
