Foc "La Fera Ferotge" LP
Absolutely reckless and compressed hardcore punk rock, full of jumps in register and micro-shifts in timing. Based in Barcelona, and powering through 10 songs in their mother tongue of Catalan, this livid and catchy record is like MOTORHEAD at 78rpm with the vocal phrasing of the PEGGIO PUNX or INDIGESTI. Sounds like the bass is made of wiggly melted down Gitoni players, and the guitars have Big Muff pedals wedged in the amplifier cones. Punk at this level of disheveled velocity and excitement is a rare art.
