Direct Control- Bucktown Hardcore LP. This ripping 24 track monster includes hit after hit of early 80's influenced hardcore. Taking queues from the meaner side of that era (bands like The Fix, CIA,Koro and Poison Idea), this LP captures the attitude and essence of those classic bands almost perfectly with a combination of biting, sarcastic wit, and spiteful lyrics overtop a non-stop barrage of fast hardcore insanity. Direct Control could probably take a lot of the credit (or blame) for the recent resurgence of no-bs, no-frills fast 80s influenced hardcore and this LP clearly shows why. If for some reason you weren't able to get your hands on the many of their earlier releases, now you have no excuse. This record is essential!
