Well shit howdy! After getting half way through writing this review, my laptop died. Well, not so much mine, but one my boss lets me use at home. Not important. Anyway, everything I wrote immediately disappeared in half a second. So…the first thing you’ll notice is the CRASS influenced military font on the border framing a creepy as fuck clown holding an old timey round bomb and then a bunch of things that add texture, but don’t make sense to me. When you pull out te sleeve, the lyrics(some French, some English) are on one side and there’s pictures of show flyers and photos of the band in the studio. Ya know, even the center of te record is a bit CRASSY. Anyway, 20 MINUTES kills it! Every track is just unapologetic brutal crust that’s mostly woman fronted accompanied by raspy male vocals. I immediately thought of NAUSEA, NUCLEAR DEATH TERROR and FLEAS AND LICE. All the lyrics are fiercely political and aren’t just rehashed war formula staples. They tackle the integrity of the crust scene and comment on the recent global upheavals and question work life that starts every unsatisfying day with the blip of an alarm clock. The mix and recording are perfect. I love when well written songs are preserved properly. Ever buy something from a good band that you just can’t listen to? Not this one! Top notch from start to finish! Another staller release from Maloka. (Jake)
This project of the CCCP is to take a region, cook what they cook and make it vegan, using ingredients available to the CCCP in their locales and when possible from scratch.
The CCCP is presently made up of four gentle souls (and our partners) we are spread throughout the U.S. and Canada.We eat local and we eat NO KILL.
For our first project, the CCCP took on French inspired recipes to celebrate spring time. The second submission comes from our Cave Wizard Matthew.
Try these recipes and see what you think. Please comment with any changes you make to the recipes and any ideas YOU have to play with and make these recipes fun.
