Christ, by the time I had scratched my balls once I was already halfway through the album! These guys go through the thirteen songs on “Don’t Know How To Breakdance” like they’ve got somewhere else to be in ten minutes and don’t plan on being late.
After a couple of 7” and splits, In Defence has now dropped their first full-length and if you like thrashy hardcore with NYHC a la Warzone mixed in, then these guys are like a wet dream. Now I don’t often say that when it involves guys but for In Defence I’ll make an exception because they have sarcastic lyrics, kickass songs like “Boombox Crew” and “No War But Star Wars” and managed to get me moshing in my living room.
Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
