It's mid-paced French hardcore with melodic backing vocals and a pissed off singer. Well that sounds pretty good to me, but these sound far too safe somehow. They remind me of bands like W. The Green Day copyists are still pumping em out but not a patch on the original! The production is pretty tinny as well, which is a turn off. The four songs are like you'd imagine, personnel angst which is hit or miss! Side B kicks off with their best effort a track called 'Last One Part 2' which shows they're capable of making a interesting sound with some experimentals goings off in the intro.
It had enough different styles to make it standout from the other production line tracks. Comes with a lyric sheet which is all in English but the cover was really bland maaan! Hardcore, Hardcore, ardcore This is more of the same. I love their name and the brilliant artwork on the cover so why ain't this CD living up to my initial excitement?
An excitement that quickly drained away after an handful of plays and became so fucking predictable!? Chanty choruses barked out by burly looking geezers are ten a penny these days. You've gotta have something extra special to stick out in the punk crowd unless your names Agnostic Front. Well hate to be the negative but Positively Negative ain't really found their positive yet. They're certainly a fast, tight playing hardcore band from Seattle, but what else does that tell you?
Not much It made me think "hey maybe I was wrong about these geezers after all! See it don't hurt one bit to put a bit of effort into getting a tune together does it Johnny? And here's me thinking Starsky And Hutch were entertaining. The mammoth 'Point Blank' brings into the spotlight Positively Negative's well crafted musical prowess, which was never in doubt. It's probably one of my favourites ending on a great dose of feedback, which sends us nicely into interesting sounding 'Cant Fuck The System When The Systems Fucking You!
They then do one token cover of 'Plastic Bomb' by Poison Idea. Gotta admit I've never actually heard this before so can't comment, but it sounded alright to me, especially with those "whooargh! Mad Skull Records. And it's a good mix! Those sickly pop-punk bands that seem to have hogged these comps for so long are nowhere to be seen, and have been put aside for a more snottier crowd, thank gawd! Acupuncture All-stars get the show on the road with some clever streetwise songs most notable being the grotty 'Chip Shop Alley'.
It's great to hear a song riddled with real life situations on the UK's guttural society for a change. I think these have been around before in some early incarnation back in the 90's when the NWOBNW was on the go and full of poseurs.
So maybe that accounts for a couple of their songs being way too tame? But their early Jam styled riffs and song structures seems so fresh to hear these days, especially with a clean production. They're definitely at their best when they forget to impress anyone and concentrate on their soho anthems like 'Family Jam' and 'Pop star'.
And Simon Dudfields cocky UK vocals are a great asset to have in a band at the moment. Scotland's Chinese Burn took some plays to get into, particularly the frog-like vocals of Ralph Todd.

While this perceived inauthenticity is viewed with scorn and contempt by members of the subculture, the definition of the term and to whom it should be applied is subjective.
An article in Drowned in Sound argues that s-era " hardcore is the true spirit of punk", because "after all the poseurs and fashionistas fucked off to the next trend of skinny pink ties with New Romantic haircuts, singing wimpy lyrics", the punk scene consisted only of people "completely dedicated to the DIY ethics".

David Blain, a social outcast on P. He was thought as one of the best students in his 9 th grade class. Everyone thought of him as a nerd and that lead him to an empty feeling in his heart. He wanted to be the funny guy that brought everyone together for some laughs, the jock guy that had all the girls in his hands or the fairly accepted person that knew everyone, but instead he was left with his best friend the books.
He was always looking for that great future American dream brought to his eyes by television, or the almost perfect future his parents always said he would have if he studied medicine, but happiness now was the cost of that future. He read and read, and searched for the answers in his books, of what would it take to be one of the guys. One day, David decided to go with his Mom to Borders, since it was his favorite place at that time, and as he passed the aisles, he heard some music which leads him to the music aisle he barely visited.
Hardcore punk was in the air, and the swirls of independence rolled the music artist voice into his tiny little eardrums that took the sound.

As he cleaned the room, in his bedroom, he heard some noise from the outside. He was stunned of how cruel he thought that comment was.

The more he got into the studies, the less he was closer to being that normal fascinating guy with many friends.

Unless someone can explain this, it will be removed from the article. I will do that. If you did so read it there, it would be wise to re-add the single release Only time will tell. In the second paragraph it says she taught herself guitar as a child.
