Right out of the gate, these Sydney punks do the 1-2-1-2 squirmy slam better than just about anyone I've heard. "Island Of Shame" (and especially that intro) is pretty much the sonic embodiment of modern punks taking "old" "hardcore" and making it their own....it unleashes with a DISORDER level fury but a razor sharp and precise attack. Brooke's anxious, affected shouts have a decidedly UK82 bent that puts the whole band's attack on edge. At their roots, QUICK FIX are the sound that the '10s will likely be known for - short burst of hardcore presented as straight beat stomps, with reverbed vocals and "wish we were in 1983" guitar effects - but instead of aping a trend, they are dominating the sound completely.
