Violent Apathy - Here Today... 7" Gravelvoice Records 1983
This has always been a bit of a strange record to my ears. On one hand there's a sluggishness to the music that is sort of unappealing to me, but strangely it is this sluggishness to the music that makes this record sort of appealing lol. I know that probably doesn't make sense, I guess what I mean is that in general sluggish mid paced punk is not my thing, but these guys pull it off on this record in my opinion, and after a few spins this record starts to sound pretty damn good to me.
Give it a listen, maybe you'll agree with me or the Flex discography which calls this one "Mediocre, generic hardcore, all songs sound the same, and the production is way too thin and lifeless. Not a complete disaster, but not to interesting either"
