Lifetime – “Hello Bastards” LP
The origins of Lifetime go back to the early 90’s – when they were a slightly underwhelming, lighter-style straight edge band on New Age Records. But by the mid 90’s, with the explosion in pop-punk taking place across the US, they recalibrated their sound – increasing the tuneage quota, whilst also drastically ramping-up the speed and energy factor – and that, combined with the good fortune of climbing aboard Jade Tree, cemented their second and third LPs as future classics, to be now dusted-off and repressed by Epitaph 25 years later. Well deserved late recognition of an old friend. This is the slightly more expensive version on limited edition coloured vinyl.
