• Crude "Drug x Culture" Cassette
Brand new album from this long-running and killer Japanese hardcore band. There is no need for any introduction with a band like Crude!
As always, the sound is mega-tight Japanese hardcore with virtuosic playing and tons of bizarre twists and turns in the songwriting. Like the later Gauze stuff, the songs jerk back and forth in ways that barely make sense but still just work. An absolute ripper, and with fucking SUGI killer artwork too.
