Sprouts
Pins and Glasses 7" (Sound Pollution)

By: Jeb Branin

Ooooh baby! SPROUTS unleashes 20 hit and run hardcore mini-classics on their debut 7". The production is raw and raspy (intentionally) and it is a perfect way to showcase a band that plays with that oldschool thrash vibe - y'know the one that remembers that fastcore and melody and hooks are not all mutually exclusive. If the first D.R.I. 7" had been a tribute to THE DESCENDENTS, it would have sounded something like this. Fans of Japanese thrash will only be pleasantly surprised because this illustrates everything that is right with that scene. Imagine if TOTAL FURY stripped everything down to the purist basics.
