Absolutely killer Midwest hardcore circa 1981 from these Kalamazoo, Michigan rippers. A bootleg EP titled Reason was issued a few years back that featured these 11 tunes plus a few others, and some of these tracks can be found on the Master Tape and Process Of Elimination comps, but the important thing here is not necessarily the origin, but rather the impact these sounds will have on your life. The frenetic and frantic pace is reminiscent of N.O.T.A. while the open guitar chords are classic HÜSKER DÜ - but this was recorded before either of those bands reached their prime. The vocals are lazy and rife with disillusioned adolescent frustration and the songs are light years more advanced than most '80s hardcore...great hooks, total passion, 9 minutes of pure magic.
