Gauze - Fuckheads LP

I've been in a Japanese/Swedish hardcore mood recently thanks to finding my old hoodie with the Gauze backpatch on it and MLP sending me a Headcleaners EP this morning. Goddamn this shit is basically perfect, noisy, fast as fuck hardcore. How in the hell these guys are still going strong is beyond me. Since 1981 man! Fucking madness.

Fuckheads is their 1st LP and came out in '84. Many have imitated it, none will ever be the same. Basically, the guitar and bass sound comparable to a concrete saw, the drums sound like the were recorded with a tincan mic, and the vocals are thankfully (or not depending on your taste) missing that somewhat cartoony japanese hardcore overthetopness.
