Talk Is Poison – “Condensed Humanity: The Prank EPs” LP
Oakland’s Talk Is Poison were an amazing hardcore band that existed in the late 90’s. They released three 7″s (from first time round – they reformed briefly in 2010) which this 12″ compiles together: the Straight To Hell and Control EPs , plus their half of the split Deathreat. Boasting one of the tightest, hardest, rhythm sections in the entire history of international hardcore (seriously!), these recordings still rage out of the speakers with an earnest ferocity and lethal punchiness. One of the best.
