HASKELS - Taking The City By Storm LP
Last time we got these in they didn't last long!
Despite finding their way on both legendary punk bootleg series in Killed By Death and Bloodstains, they really were far closer to the world of energetic, hard edged power pop than the majority of the "KBD" bands. Just look at the clothes! Not to mention their lyrical concerns.
Doesn't make 'em any better or worse, just sayin'. "Takin' the City By Storm," the one that's on all the comps, is the highlight here, the others are surprisingly not far off that high water mark, but as mentioned, more of the buttoned down, striped shirt side of life.
