Vivisuk - U.S. Disastwhore 7"

This is the only release by these punks from Lansing, MI.  The music on this record is simple hardcore, sometimes played at near-thrashing speeds.  It reminds me of AUS ROTTEN or some of the UK82 bands with a bit of BLATZ thrown in.  The recording sounds almost live here:  a single-tracked distorted guitar, Steph's caustic vocals, and an adequate rhythm section.  The shouted male vocals provide a good counterpoint to the angry female vocals.  Lyrically, they dislike the rich, cops, and Eugene anarchists in that order.  That last one really had me laughing.  I love punks with a sense of humor!

I might have some copies left in my distro.
