Urban sprawl – “Concrete altar” 7″
San Francisco hardcore punk, mined from the same local seam of precious minerals that gave us Punch, Talk Is Poison, Primal Rite, Khiis, No Statik etc. Featuring members of Torso as well as Profile, Wound Man, and even Joyce Manor. First pressing is super-expensive, and has a luxurious metallic gold print on the cover, limited to 300 copies on orange vinyl. I thought the price was a mistake/mis-type, but, I re-checked, they really are £12. Oh-dear… you get 5 tracks and nearly ten minutes of (very) good quality noise in a stylish package. Ain’t so bad.
