I’ve seen “Soup for My Family“, the debut album from Seattle punks Lysol described as blazing fast and snotty hardcore. That is certainly an accurate description, but after repeated listens I just can’t get past the fact that there is so much more going on here. It’s loose and rocking in places, tight and brash in others.
The album is a buffet of riffs channeling the Stooges, Black Flag, and Motorhead with the distorted garage punk blast of a band like Teengenerate. When they unload the chamber on songs like ‘Disinfectant‘ it’s almost too much for your heart to take. In fact, it will have your old ticker racing along to the kick drum that pounds through ‘C-4‘.
