Killing Time - Brightside
Let's see what happened today to me shall we?
I'm on day 5 of the worst head cold and cough of my life. I had two different kiss ass client meetings at work. I lost my fucking wallet at lunch!!!! Spent an hour canceling credit cards and all that shit. To top it off, I took the bus home after resorting to panhandling for change - in a shirt and tie. Did I mention I lost my wallet?
Yeah, I think Killing Time - "Brightside" will do the trick.
This record is angry. Really angry. Loud and angry. I consider RawDeal/Killing Time one of the great underrated NYHC bands. They should be right alongside Sick of It All, The Cro-Mags and AF as pioneers of the sound.
I was enamored with the whole "In Effect" hardcore imprint label back in the late 80's. After the interviews with Howie Abrams over at Double Cross, I had to pull this record out for old time's sake.
I'm glad I did because it really came in handy today.
