Rat-Nip - Comfortable Chair - 7

Labels: Song Book
Review by: Alex Deller

Hardcore from Pittsburgh that’s ugly, mean and uncannily fixated on making you swallow your own busted teeth. The seven songs here are tearing and hate-filled but utterly ‘together’, veering wildly from one track to another like 90s Poison Idea playing through 80s Poison Idea’s gear. I was gonna make some gag about the band name (like are they catnip for rats, or obsessed with rodent teats?) but a quick google tells me it was actually some old rat poison from back in the day. Truth be told that’s a lot less funny and a bit more sinister, but, heck, also more fitting than any old tosh I was coming up with.
