**ABORT BABY NEW YEAR–IT’S PURE IMPACT**
PRESKOOL DROPOUTS is making shaven headlines, as is the new NEVER WAS TURNED HAS BEEN zine which I have yet to actually see a copy of. NEGATIVE INSIGHTSs follow up issue has far surpassed the Punk scenes expectations, though is exactly what I would expect from the minds behind this project, and it includes a studio outtake ep from CHAOS UK. Video Filth’s demo is out now and features the best Boston Crust vocals since Disrupt. Sadist/L.O.T.I.O.N. USB dangler earrings are out now. Punk is Hell.
Top Ten of 2014 in complete disorder Blazing Eye tapes, ep and live at Labyrinth, Anasazi live at Labyrinth, Boston Strangler at the Boiler Room and everything else at the Boiler Room, Meatbag, Poikkeus live, 1984 live, Stranger, Tom and Boot Boys gig even considering I mostly only saw The Unseen and August Spies, L.O.T.I.O.N. demos, Schizophasia “5000” lp.
Members: We have Kevin on guitar, Jack on bass, Brady on drums, and I’m singing. (Mark)
