    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!

lyrics

looking out from the darkness
and the shit keeps rolling on by
grabbing hold of my brain and i keep falling
it's past the point of shedding tears
it ain't no use to sit and cry

everybody knows the reason why

in the parade of damaged people now
it's the blind leading the screwed
laughing or crying we keep falling
another day goes by
another species dies
it ain't no use to sit and cry

everybody knows the reason why

gripped by this feeling
this terrible urgency
everything conceivable
it's an aspect of the permanent catastrophe
and it's killing me

at the slightest provocation now
my heart's skipping a beat
one thoughtful gesture and i'm falling
i see a light in you
but it runs me through
and all i can do is sit and cry

everybody knows the reason why

gripped by the feeling
this terrible urgency
everything is nothing
and it burns inside of me
gripped by this feeling
this terrible urgency
everything conceivable
is an aspect of
the permanent catastrophe

it's killing me
it's killing you
it's killing we
