Olympia has been cranking out much (and over) hyped bands with alarming frequency for the last few years. Some of these bands are not worth half of the accolades the internet bestows upon them (and some are worth even less) but the scene in that bizarre little 'shire is a force to be reckoned with nonetheless. HYSTERICS might seem far removed from the knuckle dragging hardcore scene that is in the process of defining Olympia circa '13 (GAG, WHITE WARDS, GRIMACE), but that illusion is a testimony to how legitimately killer that city is these days. Ruthless all female hardcore - ferocious and brilliant. Tracks on this 2012 tour cassette come from their EP, demos, two live radio sets and one 2010 rehearsal jam. This band is so fukkn good.
