It's fine to be a um of your parts when you're made up of the best things, and that describes Portland's OLD CITY in a nutshell. Members of ADELIT@S, ASS END OFFEND, DEAD CULT, SQUALORA cranking out gruff, addictive dark punk that conjures COMPLICATIONS, LEATHERFACE and Greg Sage while sounding like nothing except OLD CITY. I confess that I came to the band late (this tape is from 2016), but it gave me an excellent opportunity to ingest everything at once...which was a definite positive. Choice cut: "Peaceful Atom"
