Free Spirit- Free Yourself 7" on Triple B Records/Lockin Out Records. Can someone say "straight ahead"? When I heard this band for the first time I though I was listening to some unreleased SA track. Man, am I a sucker for bands like this, short fast sincere songs. I think all band should play like this and not 15 min boring songs about how life is a living hell and you can't wait to die, fuck off. I can't wait to see these guys with disengage(the only bands I'm gonna see at the show) this week.
Disengage- Look Back 7" on Back To Back Records. Now I've been going to show since the mid 90's and I remember when bands sounded like this. Sure they weren't the best recorded song but they were sincere in what they said, I can appreciate that in this record. This band features Ned from Title Fight and Dan of Cold World fame. Now if your not to busy listening to your metal crap records, do your self a favor and pick this record up here and get it a listen.
Stick Together- No More Games 7" on Back To Back Records. When I heard Hoodrack had a new band and they were Straight Edge I had to check them out. I'm a sucker for SXE bands especially good one's and not those metal or thug crap going round today, fuck that! So as soon as the demo went up for order on the BTB store I got 2 copies(both different color paper but ended up getting both on the same color paper, bummer) since I love tape demo's and have a huge tape collection, viva the tape format, fuck CD-R's. I don't know if this band has that "lockin out" style people are saying they do, all I know its fuck good. Sucks they aren't on this tour with Free Spirit and Disengage but regardless get their record and tell me what you think. I guess I was one of the lucky one's to get all 3 colors since they had the little mishap with the orange vinyl, oh well.
