If anyone is aware of any contemporary hardcore bands who come close to sounding like Die Kreuzen in any kind of credible way then please send me a link. I will not initially believe you but please link me anyway. Fuck, what a band, riff at 00.59 is awesome and the way it kicks back in so seamlessly totally marries the seemingly disparate concepts of exemplary muscianship with scrappy punk rock. Naysayers be damned, punk kids can play tight. Fugg. If you aren't already aware of this band then Touch & Go recently reissued the first two records which is basically perfect timing for you. Do it!
Also, if you know how to embed videos on .blogspot accounts then let me know, I copy& pasted the Youtube code a number of times but it wouldn't accept the HTML. I know so little about that sort of shit that I just typed HTLM and didn't notice. Thanks. (FIXED, I WIN)
