Strychnine
Born in a Bar (TKO Records)

By: Mike SOS

Oakland, CA's Strychnine has crafted the perfect hardcore punk sound on Born in a Bar. Sounding like a cross between Murphy's Law, Black Flag, and Zeke, songs like the self-titled rocker (complete with piano) and "Follow Yer Leader" emanate with the street punk sensibilities you can't get from the punk rock today. The buzzsaw twin guitar assault on tracks like "Lil' Duvel" and "Idiot for You" are bound to raise the ire of any moshpit, while the Motorhead meets Ramones stomp of "Icons" is a simple pleasure that will assist you wrecking any room you see fit. Strychnine will appeal to everyone sick of what gets passed down as punk today, as Born in a Bar gives two middle fingers and a kick in the ass to every pretty boy punk band on the landscape.
