Every time I blast NEGATIVE DEGREE I'm left dumbfounded - why wasn't this band blowing every punk's mind when they were kicking? It says something that their only two vinyl releases are from non-US labels, and I've already suggested the possible geographical explanations for the punk radar blipping right over these Colorado ragers....but fukkn listen to this tape from 2011 and you'll understand why I'm flummoxed. "Dead-Void" is in line with (early) FUCKED UP, DS-13, REGULATIONS...you know, the heavyweights. And there are six other burners here...all of 'em fukkn are legit. Every last one. "One Horse Town" on repeat every damn day - this is frustration. This is punk.
