FRONT LINE- Basic Training 7″EP (Beach Impediment Records, USA, 2012)

You may have heard FRONT LINE on the glorious 2nd installment of MASTER TAPE (find the quintessential volume one here) – and you know that this band overshadowed the other (very good) bands in terms ofspeed and punch by miles.
Finally, the complete 1982 10-song demo (from which the comp tracks were taken) has been released. And it fucking rules. Simple as that. When Hardcore was a force like music had seen none before. And lyrics like these to boot:

«Spit, fight, curse, kick
Busted bottles, flyling bricks
Spurs, leather, boots, chains
Broken bones, friends in pain

Aggression is a part of me
A cure for life’s monotony». (from «The red Hour»)

Fuckshitupism!

Apparantly only 300 were made of this, so order your copy today!
Comes with lyric sheet, sticker and a digital download (from which I took these three songs). You can order it from Grave Mistake or other distributors.

    Ordered it from Crucial Response in germany. Yeah, it fucking rules. The sound is a bit flat, I think (haven’t compared it yet, but I somehow believe the Master Tape tracks sounded crunchier). That’s the kind of Hardcore I will never get tried of. Maybe because not so many bands managed to get it done in such brilliance.

    This is pretty damn wild – pure Boston Not LA era Gang Green imho – damn impressive! Does it matter that it hasn’t seen light of day for all these years? Kind of…maybe I’m a completist snob, but if it didn’t make the cut back then well so be it…sometimes the great stuff never came to light…I kinda like that it didn’t…does it deserve release? – yes! As a limited edition of 300 so it only become a treasured item by an elite few? hmmm….methinks maybe not…

    On the other hand, 300 copies might get physically pressed (and, obviously hardly sell), while the music is out there digitally.
