OFF! – “Live at Generation Records” EP
This hardcore supergroup continues to go
for the throat in this record store day release. This time around, Off gives us a live
recording from an in store gig at Generation Records in New York City.
These short fast bursts of hardcore punk come
off even more intense live with a ferocious attack that kicks through the
speakers. While only four songs, it is a
glimpse of when hardcore punk was way more of a threat than it seems to be now
(given the history of the band members they have a legit claim to this era). This is a hint of what their live show
like as well as a 45 rpm starting point for interested readers who might not be
able to buy the CD/four 7” box set debut yet.
This is hardcore punk when it’s done right. (BOONE)
