Gutter Knife – “Boots on the Ground” 12″
Boot-boy damage rampaging out of Brighton. Detecting a Negative influence here. As in Approach. As in FX, too. Executed with that thuggish, distinctly UK street punk sound that Americans lose their shit over (and fail miserably to replicate) – hooligan ‘ardcore, with an air of controlled violence and defiant attitude. A dead cert if you like Arms Race and Violent Reaction, as these guys have the (knife) edge over both bands.
