Affirmative Action Jackson
Demo CD-R (demo)

By: Jeb Branin

This is great. Not to be confused with the old political comic, AFFIRMATIVE ACTION JACKSON are a piss-take hardcore thrash band whose music has all the snotty attitude you could ever hope for. If you dig bands whose middle fingers are waving at all time but still know how to wield their instruments and rip through some first-rate thrash, this is for you. Almost everyone of these songs was recorded on the first take and the raw delivery is the icing on the cake. Instead of the hyperthrashing sound that is all the rage today, AAJ are more reminiscent of the early 80s sound that would later be known as power violence. Imagine if a band like SLOBBER had tried harder and been more violent and you would have an idea of where this was coming from.
