No – Growing Up Together CS

ImageNo – Growing Up Together CS (self-released):  I didn’t realize that NO, one of the best UK hardcore bands going, had anything before their monster of a debut LP.  When I saw this tape, I grabbed it immediately and was relieved when I popped it in.  This is the NO I know and love.  Intense, palpably angry hardcore punk that incorporates plenty of weird stops, odd time signatures, and varied song speeds and length to make everything they do totally engaging.  The production on this isn’t quite as in the red as either of their LPs and the guitar tone doesn’t sound quite as glassy and uniquely this band as it would later, but these seven songs are well worth your time.  Afterwards, go grab both of their LPs and see them destroy the US in a few months if you get the chance.
