tape of the week 3-17

this is the first installment of TOTW where I dig into one the various boxes of cassettes that i have scattered around my house and re-visit some old gems. First up: Born Against 'the rebel sound of shit and failure' This record was pivotal in taking hardcore into previously uncharted waters, it's aggressive, angry, and kind of weird. The vocals sound like an angry teenager screaming into a bad 4-track in the basement of a crack house. The lyrics, however, are intelligent, and very political. a classic.
