RATIONS - For Victory LP
The band's first release, predating the two 7"s on square of opposition. I think this is what Crimpshrine would've sounded like if they were an east coast band from like 2001.
one-sided 12" w/ screened b-side and a crazy newsprint zine insert.
86'd Records and Fanzines.
Took a few listens through for this album to fully open up to me, but then everything just clicked, and now I can't stop playing it. First-off, it looks brilliant, the layout reminds me of a Born Against/(Young Pioneers) insert. Musically, the songs kinda hold that early nineties Jawbreaker, Crimpshrine style while still sounding current, like Jonesin' jamming on Latterman or something... loads of bass fills and gang vocals. The songs really vary within that overall boundary, which keeps the album fresh, interesting and very replayable. It's an exciting communal effort that has something to say, and there's at least a dozen people listed as contributors.
