THE CROISSANTS / RAD "Split" (7"/EP)
Thrash-veterans RAD attack with the fury of a honey badger denied snacks. Their Necros cum Black Flag implosion rips along, fronted by the vocal bite of Lori Gilpatrick and Charles Albright's killer wails. With one other EP and three cassettes, this split is RAD's first since their very well received 2013 LP Loud & Fast. "This is a frenzy of good ole' female-fronted thrash punk blended with plenty of fastcore. RAD is kick-ass to the extreme and full of non-stop energy, incredible musicianship and highly memorable jams" sez Cut & Paste. Recorded by Ted Angel.If RAD is inspired by Los Angeles' early 80s slam pit, CROISSANTS sounds like they'd rather be hanging out on Beach Blvd. Hans, Heather, and Gabba throw pop pitches to heroes Red Cross and the Simpletones, with razor guitars, fuzz, and beer-in-the-sun melodies. And when the buzz wears off a lazy anger builds. The Croissants formed in 2010, but didn't really hit it until they found Heather in a bar fight and drafted her as drummer. Adored in their hometown of Sac, the Croissants have found ears elsewhere through records on Asian Man and Hella Mad. Recorded by Chris Sabatoni and Ted Angel.
