Crude – “Drug Culture” LP
The most recent album from this long-running Japanese hardcore band (since 1995). Recorded on a four-track, resulting in a dirty rawness that is totaly in keeping with this style of heart-driven rage; but without muddying the mix – you can still hear all the blazing melodies and creative twists and turns. Burning Spirits hardcore that is pure and unpolished. If you don’t love the one-microphone live-vocal style of a four track recording (with cardboard box drums!) – you don’t love DIY hardcore punk. Fact.
The first press comes with huge poster (33×23 inch) featuring artwork by the legendary Sugi.
