MAXIMIUM ROCKNROLL REVIEW #294
Attention hardcore punk and skins! A split CD entitled East Meets Midwest has reared it's nasty head. FED UP from New York and DISAVOW from Chicago have executed a surgical strike on you knuckleheads! This is balls out hardcore insprired by CRO-MAGS, MADBALL, AGNOSTIC FRONT and there ilk. This music demands your undivided attention! As soon as you put this Cd on, you will find that you are standing up with your boots laced, ready for action. FED UP leads the foray into danger with there powerful opener "Brutal Takeover" This raw hardcore starts off menacing and quickly accelerates to deadly strength! Fuck! song number two by FED UP is "Drunken Violence" this song comes straight to your face with FED UP dropping radioactive ordinance on you with no mercy! These hardcore stalwarts crash through "Bodacious Ta Tas" and "Snitch Bitch" and leave you happy and beaten! Disavow takes up the hardcore banner next and crunch your skull like a melon! DISAVOW powers through "So Few Bullets" "By The Numbers" "Your Turn" and finish you off with "No More Heroes" Great! This CD gives you two of America's top-shelf hardcore bands in a nice little package. Order it up now!!!
Review by Revelation Zine
Split CD between New York's Fed Up! and The Windy City's Disavow. Fed Up! bring some smoking old school NYHC joints ala Wazone, A.F., Murphy's Law, Breakdown (featuring the hit "Bodacious Tatas) while Disavow speeds things up and destroys, Hatebreed, Madball, Leeway style.
