A brand new Social Unrest, I didn't even know this was out but I have to admit to feeling a bit of trepidation when I spun this record for the first time in Beatdown Records, Newcastle. Sometimes old bands come up royally with the goods but the majority release records that are in a totally different league to past endeavors and somewhat sour past glories. Anyway I was very pleasantly surprised with this 3 song ep and how fresh it sounds.It has a very distinct californian sound but is catchy as hell and makes you want to listen to the songs over and over. The sleeve has a sticker on it that proclaims that this is the best Social Unrest release since the classic Rat In a Maze Lp and I wouldn't disagree and hopefully we'll get a full length sometime soon. The ep comes on a sickly (and I mean looks like a mixture of pink and vomit) pink wax.
