THE FORMALDEHYDE JUNKIES (ARE A TOTAL WRECK)

This record smokes, it's one of the best hardcore records that i,ve heard in a long time . The Formaldehyde Junkies are from Minneapolis, the Junkies play fast, crazy hardcore punk rock not unlike the early `80s D.C. or Boston scenes. Are a Total Wreck, their first EP, is a latter-day masterpiece of punk rock. In a few short minutes, FJ channels the speed of the F.U.’s , the conviction of Minor Threat, and the snotty attitude of Government Issue, without sounding like a crappy tribute band. Some of this info came from http://www.punknews.org/review/5471 . I read that they supposedly had an album that was to be released, but I think they broke up before that happened. If anyone has any info on these guys or the album, please feel free to comment!!! Go visit the label at http://www.firestarterrecords.com/fr09pi.htm .
