Plan of Attack
The Working Dead (Organized Crime)

By: Mike SOS

Straight ahead hardcore with bite is the style played by the Chicago quintet Plan of Attack, whose 18-track offering wouldn't sound out of place in between a Youth of Today and Gorilla Biscuits double bill. Getting down and dirty with some fast paced old school fashioned tunes like "Where Do You Get Off" and the cleverly titled "Goodbye, Fuck You", you can tell that these folks have studied their Minor Threat and Bad Brains albums cold. Dropping 18 tracks in 19 minutes is also quite the accomplishment, juxtaposing the spirit of youth crew hardcore with a sarcastic sneer not unlike Billy Milano's work (MOD, SOD). Lyrically juggling personal hardships with political views as the band valiantly trudges through pertinent hardcore riffs, Plan of Attack's latest is a effort laced with pride and ripe with old school flavor.
