GENERIC were anything but generic. Maybe these tunes delivered today might sound a little "dated," but in 1985, this combination of '80s UK hardcore, unwaveringly fierce politics and a steady diet of early anarcho punk resulted in an amazing demo (and a few stellar records that followed). The guitar tone is fukkn textbook, it's the kind of sound that bands should walk in to the studio with, play it for the engineer and say: "Make me sound like that" (seriously, just the intro to "Time To Jump" could be cloned and repeated and the result would still be better than most of the records released today). Who would have the nuts to record "Coca-Killer" today? And if someone did, then they would more than likely just be called idealistic twits (as GENERIC may well have been back then), but the song is dished out with pure sincerity and comes off not preachy, but rather factual. GENERIC first appeared on Terminal Escape via the North Atlantic Noise Attack compilation, but these tracks completely smoke that stuff - this just crushes me. Enjoy.
