Tear Off//Clean Up- demo tape review
Tear Off/Clean Up- demo tape review
This is blue collar melodic hardcore punk with a heavy sing-a-long vibe a la 7 Seconds, Frank White, early Descendents, and the like. It’s well put together, but doesn’t perfectly match up with the rhythms of the song, which is part of what gives it the soul that it has. It’s clear, but not clean- hell, you could give this to a crusty in between their shitty Contravene discography CD, Disclose bootleg tape that they paid $100 for and it still sounds like shit, and a still unwrapped LP of Mischief Brew’s latest record, and it would fit in just fine. These are some cool catchy guitar driven punk rock songs. Buy a pint of R&R and a pack of Native Spirits for the complete TO/CU experience.
