Toxic Reasons God Bless America EP

The TOXIC REASONS’ latest EP features some scathing commentaries on contemporary American life, though the songs don’t quite rate with their best material. “Can’t Get Away” is a bracing shock of ’77-style punk, while the two other tracks invade D.O.A.’s territory of pile-driving political rock. Timely and heartfelt.

This is actually the domestic pressing of their latest EP. The import, reviewed in a previous issue, contained some tracks from the American release “Kill by Remote Control,” so they’ve replaced those tracks with the import 7” “God Bless America.” If you don’t have the import EP or 7”, snap this up.

This domestic release is a bit different than the recent UK job. It contains three songs not on the UK version (two of which disappeared on their last 7”) but one song that’s on the UK version doesn’t appear here. Rockin’ improvement.
