DRY HEAVES - "Medicated Youth" EP
Holy shit this is good. DRY HEAVES remind me a lot fellow countrymen from the now defunct SHITTY LIMITS. Playing a fast old hardcore punk sound with odes to MINOR THREAT and the ADOLESCENTS, yet still keeping in a modern DIY feel, DRY HEAVES deliver one great 7". All the classic subjects are tackled here: people who talk too much; kids being drugged by their parents so they are normal; and the song "Graft"is the classic ode to not wanting to a get a regular job like society tells ya. Oh yeah, this record rocks. (JF)

 DRY HEAVES: Medicated Youth: 7” This record fucking rules. Simple riffs, fast beats, clean vocals… but all played at a frantic beat and with a really crisp recording. I hear old U.K. melodies in the vocals, old American hardcore in the guitar, and rock’n’roll in the drums. This is punk rock by weirdo British kids who drink 40s and skateboard and just want to play shitty tours for no money in other people’s basements. The product is simple, but so organic and unpretentious that it’s hard to even describe the sound. It’s like early Black Flag mixed with the Buzzcocks with a dose of modern party thrash thrown in because they don’t care what you think. Buy this if you think all the early Fucked Up singles were overrated and you still have fun getting drunk at Municipal Waste shows. –Ian Wise
