Sometimes I get a tape in the mail and I know it's going to be good, and that was the case when I tore into this plastic shell with Vancouver's SNØB trapped inside. Considering their pedigree, I figured this was a sure thing...but I wasn't prepared for this. Every bit as furious as I had hoped, they start with a dirge and then step effortlessly into a relentless pace that rarely slows until the surprisingly excellent DICKS cover that closes the demo (and I only say "surprisingly" because it's pretty gutsy to fukk with THE DICKS). New millennium raw punk ferocity shitting all over the '80s rehash paradigm, this tape is pure devastation. Also, the BEASTIE BOYS cover is a killer random blow.
