Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2019-01-23 
Blazing scorched earth hardcore like only our brethren in Redwood City can make. A fine distillation of early Die Kruezen, Millions of Dead Cops and DRI in places, but slathering it in the irreverence that was bands like Plutocracy, Spazz, Slap a Ham records realm. Fuckin freaky shit too with uses of samples, meter and tone changes. All songs mix up parts and are tight as that fucking last lug nut that refuses to budge. Good golly whippersnappers, I haven’t been so seared raw since I shared a stage with Die Kruezen during Reagan’s first term. This band includes KZSU dj at large Dave Leech as well as members of Conquest for Death, Venkman, Slobber, Agents of Satan, Go Like This. Welcome back Dave. Can you pass me my oxygen tank and defibrillator now cuz Elizabeth, this is the big one, coming to join ya’ honey.

1)* (0:59) full bore 2/4 hardcore draws first blood, slow breakdown in middle 2) FCCS 3)* (0:36) blazing parts, then “rockin”, twisted stuff 4) (1:17) blazing, change ups, yikes! 5)* (0:42) blazing off time dissonance, wtf, my hair singed off 6)*(2:06) wow, is this ever good, with a weird organ sample at end 7) (0:43) after blazing along a good headbanging slow slide out 8) (1:18) pummeling 9) (1:07) more of a straight hardcore blast, turns ¾ gallop, title song 10) (0:44) blasting with rockin parts 11)* (1:06) funky insolent feel at first, local Silicon Valley references, explodes with blasting
