PROXY "Slow Suicide b/w Lawless" 7"
The latest product of an ever-fertile Montreal scene, leather, bristles, studs and poutine merchants PROXY blow down doors with this second single, a massive slab of raw, hook-laden hardcore punk. Side one's an instant classic in the spirit of UK82, Motorhead and early Leatherface; all gutteral vocals, dirty riffs and a searing solo over pure brickwall melody, while the flip puts pedal to metal for a quick blast of driving hardcore recalling the likes of primo GBH, Discharge and One Way System. Seriously a killer record, and one of the best we've ever released.
