Off!, Wasted Years (Vice Records)

Second full-length from the hardcore punk supergroup that features ex-Black Flag singer Keith Morris, Burning Brides leader Dimitri Coats, and Redd Kross bassplayer Steven Shane. And that’s all you need to know, really; were I writing this up for Juice or Maximum Rock n Roll or whatever I’d be looking up synonyms for “raw” and “in-your-face” and placing them here randomly to get this out of the way, but I’m not, so you’ll have to survive on a few comparisons, Meatmen and GBH specifically, which I mean in the most classic sense, being that this is all fast yelling madness recorded direct to tape in the studio, accomplished as quickly as possible so that they could get back to skateboarding or Bullwinkle cartoons or denture-cleaning or whatever these old felons do for fun in this incredibly non-fun decade. There have been 42,391,825 speed-punk albums recorded that sound like this, and this is one of them. A — Eric W. Saeger
