The first thing I noticed about this tape was the primitive digital recording, everything kinda tinny and almost warped sounding...except that the ROTTENS demo was recorded in 1995 and my ears were hearing analog warp and tape disintegration - either way, the sound puts and (unintentional?) edge on the whole recording. Classic late '70s punk (think Spanish) offered up by '90s Brasilian pop punk kids, with the hooks of each era co-mingling effortlessly. Life changing? Probably not. Worth repeated listens as I wake up this morning? Definitely.
