1994 suited us pretty well yesterday, so why not another visit....shall we? San Jose's BURL are a perfect example of mid decade USDIY scenes and styles colliding - emotional hardcore, melodic punk, weird mathy discordance, and an earnestness that cannot be faked (or, seemingly, replicated). I would be lying if I said that I liked everything on the demo, but I am a huge fan of the demo as a whole, and I hope the distinction is logical to you, dear reader. I hear DAMITOL. I hear early Lookout. I hear BORN AGAINST. I hear basements. I hear memories.
