REFUGEES


The A side of the tape that brought you the LAST RITES and POST MORTEM recordings features a 30 minute rehearsal recording from the dual female fronted REFUGEES. Dual female vocals will draw you in, but the guitar will hook you (pun intended) with mid tempo riffing that bridges a gap between UK anarcho and '80s Midwest hardcore ("Shrink" features a simple lick that is a dead ringer for HÜSKER DÜ's "Target," and is my favorite song on the tape). Ex-HEALTH HAZZARD, for those keeping track. Fukkn great, for those who just want to rock.
