Lost Cause


Forgotten Corners 12"

TSOL may have mutated into something barely recognizable, but their great original punk sound lives on in the material of many current SoCal bands, including the VANDALS, NO CRISIS, and, as this record indicates, LOST CAUSE. That’s certainly not a bad thing, except that here the material lacks the punch of LOST CAUSE’s 7″ debut. There are a few hot moments in “Living in Hell” and “Firing Line,” but somehow I was expecting more from these guys.

Born Dead EP

Superior thrash punk from SoCal with a roaring sound and more punch than most in a genre known for hitting power. Need I say more? Highly recommended.
