I am always very pleased when I decide to pull this one out. Late '90s hardcore that defiantly clings to the unregimented glory of that oft unheralded decade, NEXT OF KIN was born out of the Wisconsin DIY basement scene but members had migrated west by 1998 when this document was recorded...it's angry, it looks inward, it's raw intensity in sound. Their existence was short, and they existed in the shadows of their previous and more prominent projects, but this demo......pure power.

thanks Robert, I don't even have my own copy of this and thanks for the cover scan, that was a fun band to jam and travel with! There was a rad Artimus Pyle Next of Kin show at Mission records if I remember correctly.
