Count on Pee Records, home of The Decline and Local Resident Failure, to find some more kickass skatepunk in the Australian outback. Okay, so Hack The Mainframe is actually from Newcastle, which hardly qualifies as the outback. But the rest of the sentence is true. Just listen to these dudes’ debut album.
‘Disorders Of Consciousness’ comes with ten tracks’ worth of fast-paced, melodic skatepunk that is highly indebted to the sounds of the 90’s and lyrics that go from the socio-political to the personal. Think NOFX, 88 Fingers Louie, Strung Out and the likes. It’s not exactly an extremely original sound, but luckily it is a lot of other things: fun, energetic as hell and incredibly catchy. Kudos!
