    When it comes to timeless and catchy early 80s US punk sound in these fast and modern times of ours, Rats Rest from Kansas City could take a big part of the cake. If you like the old-school hardcore punk, melodic with a raspy fucked up voice, expressive vocals, mid paced drum-hitting going fast, heavy bass lines, catchy guitar works with a hard-rock attitude / playing, alongside lyric themes about depression, drugs and death, written with a personal view, then this is your new favourite band. I’m reminded of a depressed Marked Men, a bouncy No Hope For The Kids, or a street-punk-infused Leatherface as I spin these tunes. They get it pretty much right, from the well-sung vocals to the guitar solos that occurs over some moody, incessant bass-lines, its always super catchy! So put your sticky fingers on a copy of this and enjoy it!

in the tangle of a thousand ugly tubes
hanging from a rack
was a button you could slowly push
to make the blood die back
and it boiled and it bubbled
in the mouth of the fallen man
so i pushed the plastic button like
don't cry little maniac
if you can

the room began to fade away
just points of light in empty space
waiting for me
it wasn't words that i heard
just the blinding light of a crazy song
blasting through my heart
and i felt everything at once and i was moved
faraway unafraid
nothing to prove

out there past mortality
ego scattered to the wind
unfettered by false reality
we communicate again
and i cursed the shit dimension
and all its pointless suffering
and i want so much to tell them
but what the hell
what the fuck could i say
nobody believes anything anyway

they burst into the bedroom
where i laid awake in bed
terrified in sunlight
and i knew that he was dead
i said don't cry please don't cry
to this day i don't know why
