Neos-Hassibah Gets The Martian Brain Squeeze 7"

finally some great CANADIAN hardcore. man this is the fastest 7" in the world where the drummer isn't just going back and fourth on the hi-hat and snare. 14 short songs are all packed onto this 7". this album along with their first 7" (only 500 presses of each 7") were distributed by their own label "Alandhiscar". the 7"s can with insert sheets that had lyrics, info and even notes on how to play the songs. 1 year later (1983) "Rat Cage Records" re-released this with different songs titles, the music was the same thou. the Neos called it a quits in 1983 (only a 3-year career) with only releasing two 7"s, but they will not be forgotten. this is even more intense then DRI.
1. destruct 5/5 (great opener.)
2. they'll destroy themselves 4/5 (vocals are a little too harsh.)
3. (almost) typical, obligatory anti-government song 5/5 (great slower tempo.)
4. ambitious 5/5 (fantastic vocals)
5. where did you go wrong??? 4/5 (nice guitar.)
6. just like all the rest 4/5 (decent.)
7. look around in despair 4/5 (fast.)
8. conscripts 5/5 (great drum opening, slow then fast.)
9. jungle beat-so it seems 4/5 (can't hear the talking, thou.)
10. other world 4/5 (nice.)
11. opposition to all violence, even if committed in self defense 4/5 (yah.)
12. die for the cause (bobby sands) 4/5 (good.)
13. ripped off again 5/5 (angry yet? great lyrics.)
14. sexual revolution 5/5 (great track, great vocal opening.)
overall: 9.5/10 strongly recommended
the original is very rare. the rat cage repress is easier to get, but still like $50. boy that seemed like a long post, now if you'll excuse me, i have to get to bed, even thou it's only 1:41 pm.
