The title pretty much says it all. I mean...it's an acronym (and it's actually the subtitle), so I guess the acronym actually says it all: New Wave Of DC HarDCore. Some you know (PURE DISGUST, PROTESTER, RED DEATH), some you should (STAND OFF, D.O.C., GENOCIDE PACT, THE DEFENSE), and several were new to my west coast ears (SEMPER EADEM, JAVLA, STRAIGHT LACE). A clean dozen bursts of hardcore, Oi!, street punk...and lots of mosh, The Red Line Comp is a killer snapshot of DC in the early '10s.
