NEIGHBORHOOD BRATS - Recovery LP
Here’s the first proper full length album by this California powerhouse. After a slew of singles and EPs, this Long Beach, CA based quartet develop their style of aggressive Dangerhouse Records meets early 80s SoCal Hardcore even further. Yes, the L.A. Times called them a “female fronted BLACK FLAG” – it’s that band. 12 new cuts, might be your feel bad record of the year, including hits like ONE WASTED YEAR (it’s about a year that was wasted), SUBURBIA (pretty self explanatory) or THE PHARMACY IS CLOSER THAN THE LIQUOR STORE (this one’s about geography and drugs). You’re not a dummy, right, so you will buy it.
