New Berlin- Magnet LP. New Berlin started out as a one man project in Texas, but quickly morphed into a trio. Indeed, this 11-track, 24-minute affair is the stuff that ’80s teen punk nights are made of. This McAllen-based trio really cut a rug with ringing guitars, frantic bass lines, and hyperactive drums, sounding like a particularly nervous Hardcore era Devo trying to impress John Peel. Hell when you listen to the record from start to finish you realize this album could have easily been a complete killed by death sampler or some non-existent Crisis, Wire, Gang Of Four or Warsaw demo from the late 70’s or early 80’s. This Texas three-piece is firing on all cylinders here driving home a powerful punk sound that will leave you wanting more. THESE ARE LIMITED TO ONLY 203 HAND NUMBER COPIES AND ARE PRETTY HARD TO FIND. The LP includes an insert lyrics sheet as well. Import from Italy.
