Libyan Hit Squad/Round Eye
This is it. This is the point where East and West converge, where democracy and communism find a common ground. It's the entire social impact of punk rock in a nutshell. Orlando, FL's Libyan Hit Squad offer six songs of post SST insanity, a mind blowing Prog-Punk hybrid that recalls the wide-eyed paranoia of 80s hardcore ("Blown Asshole, " "Rubber Shoes, " "Brave New World, " "Faulty Bridge") while achieving the lofty musical heights of THE MINUTEMEN and BLACK FLAG- especially BLACK FLAG, since their main songwriter and guitar maestro GREG GINN contributes his expertise on the centerpiece, "Full Circle, " the be all end all of punk instrumentals, a vociferous statement that simultaneously embraces the aesthetics of punk while eschewing the limiting confines set by it's fashion-focused followers. "Lift Your Knees, " a near 6-minute rant on sexual politics that echoes JANE'S ADDICTION, CAN, and MIKE WATT is the final word. Across a continent and an ocean, Shanghai, China's ROUND EYE attack with a punk rock ferocity that melds modern post-punk a la THE FALL ("Round Eye, " "Kenting"), with doo-wop ("I'm So Young") and 60s NUGGETS/STOOGES/MC5 angst ("Carne Seca"). The closing "Got Her Runnin'" brings it all to a head, where decades, styles and influences converge to bring a uniquely Eastern vision to Western Rock'N'Roll. This isn't punk rock for mohawks, nor is it easy listening indie rock for the hipster contingent. This is the future. Chuck Foster.
