I think it’s great that hardcore’s a big thing for "the kids" in the UK these days. TDON records and the likes of Last Witness, While She Sleeps and Brutality Will Prevail seem to be a huge deal. Their music, generally speaking, goes as hard as possible, and I don’t doubt the intentions of the bands themselves in any way. Honestly, energy drink-sponsored tours or not (shut up, don’t say you wouldn’t take the money), the last thing I want to do is say anyone isn’t the real deal, or whatever, but what the fuck is up with everyone in these bands being so incredibly well dressed and good looking? Look at these pretty guys:
BUM DEM OUT: "PERUCHO'S TALE"
SIX FOOT DITCH: "SIX FEET DEEP"
SHATTERED REALM AND 50 CALIBER: "THIS WORLD IS MINE"
KNUCKLEDUST: "BLUFFS LIES ALIBIS"
