HARDWARES

VARIOUS ARTISTS

Drop The Needle

(Trev Records)

Reviewed by : Greg Pratt
Rating : 6.0

This compilation features five Boston punk and hardcore bands who were around in the '80s and '90s... still reading? Alright, then, there's GANG GREEN, who may be the most familiar to metalheads, represented here with just one tune, a BLACK FLAG-ian hardcore number with some humour to it. SMEGMA AND THE NUNZ have in their ranks members of Gang Green (every band on here seems to have some connections to every other band, as it often goes in tight-knit punk scenes) and play raw, fast, angry punk rock that is better than their name implies; they're the best band on here, although it definitely has a 15-year-old punk vibe to it. CELEBRITY DEATH CERTIFICATE feature a dude from STOMPBOX, of all things, and have a more metallic/hard rock sound, but with frantic screamed vocals; sounds like a band that could have had some odd early-'90s major-label cut-out-bin album, especially their tune 'Dead Reckoning'. SCRATCH play an energetic but forgettable sound that is the most straight-up rock on here, approaching urban noise rock when they go slow, with melodic singing over top of it... yeah, this is getting pretty early-'90s cut-out bin indeed. MALLET HEAD take an unexpected turn into southern bar/trashy near-glam rock, with not half-bad results... but once it gets grungy, look out. This one is fun but will definitely hold more meaning for those who were there or those who enjoy doing some history-book reading on old punk rock. Hearing the tunes for the first time in 2013 won't hold much sway for the casual longhair listener.
