PUSRAD- Smart Trams 7″ EP (Just4Fun, USA, 2012)

Perfection. Sort, sharp, to the point. Clever, full of energy, sounding like the best and yet like no one else. I’m sorry, but there’s nothing more that I could say. This yellow piece of plastic has so much energy, it makes me breathless. Thus the concept of “Smart Trams” is perfect: Short songs – and only 7 of them. This way, it never gets boring. Well, it wouldn’t get boring if it were a double album. But don’t tell them.
PUSRAD is from Sweden and consists of Peter and Packe, formerly of Raped Teenagers.

Peter wanted me to post all the songs, but I’m only posting every second title, cause I wanna see you guys lust & suffer.

300 made (150 on yellow). Will not be repressed in this form, as Peter says. Order the 7″ here. NOW!

    As I said on Facebook earlier, this is easily the best hardcore record I’d heard in 2011, and will most probably rule 2012 as well. It’s miles and miles ahead of the “classic” sounds being revived by Keith Morris’s Off, and newer sounds that are being hailed as “modern,” like those of Trash Talk and Fucked Up.

    It’s both thoroughly modern, and yet is also old-school hardcore operating at its fullest potential and using all of its elements as efficiently as possible- the themes, lyrics and format all do total justice to each other- this is music that’s mature and yet totally fresh all at once.

    And what a sound, too! If only more records sounded so crisp. Peter should be very proud. I’ll overlook the fact that he’s been cursed with an inability to appreciate metal if he keeps turning out stuff like this.

    “What’s the Truth?”, I’m stunned. Almost blushing over here. Glad you like it even though I haven’t got the the metal flue, yet ;). I’m more all over for 70s glam and prog rock.

    Of course! Thanks for putting out such great music! Don’t think I’ve listened to any hardcore record more than this one recently.

    As an aside- one of my “dream band” ideas (I have a few of these, haha) was something that would combine the insanity and distinct melodic sense of the Cardiacs with DRI or Koro-style hardcore , and I think you’ve taken a big step towards such an idea here!

    Thanks for posting! I just picked this one up from a local distro so hopefully I’ll have this awesome record spinning on my turntable soon.

    Good job on this one Peter!! What’s going on w/ The Flakes?!

    This is strange – today I randomly found Pusrad on Bandcamp, found that there were two guys from Raped Teenagers in Pusrad, looked up RT and of course Good Bad Music comes up. Then I look up the newest post of Good Bad Music and whaddayaknow, Pusrad is one of the newest posts. Gotta love some internet pseudosynchronicity!
