Chapter 138: So What?

Hardcore punk and punk metal

This 22 minute whirlwind of a set is so compact, the 3:32 “Butcher Baby” feels like an epic. You have to respect how efficient and bullshit-free hardcore and punk-metal is (even before accounting for the influence of no-meat, no-drugs, straight edge godfathers Minor Threat.) Want intros? You’re lucky to get four terse drumstick hits. Middle eights? “Ace Of Spades” only has time for a middle six. The riffs are scalding, the tempo consistently set to “as fast as possible.” Don’t like it? Anti-Nowhere League would like you to know: they don’t give a shit.
